This work traces strategic bombing from its first use in 1849 through the conventional bombing raids of World War II. The discussion integrates the development of the weapons with the advances in airborne delivery vehicles. The evolution of bombing strategies used in World War I to the massive attacks used by all participants in World War II is detailed. The effects of bombing on military, industrial, and civilian targets are also discussed. The text provides a background for contrasting the use of conventional bombs with the use of nuclear weapons.
