Description

"Eighth Air Force" received glowing reviews in hardback alongside Patrick Bishop's "Bomber Boys" - 'They complement each other superbly, encapsulating the best modern scholarship on the subject', said Andrew Roberts in "The Times". It reprinted quickly, and has sold steadily in hardback even at GBP 25. Now it makes an ideal impulse-buy paperback.The Bomber War in World War II was waged by two forces: the Lancasters and Halifaxes of the RAF's Bomber Command, and the Flying fortresses and Liberators of the American Eighth Air Force. Thousands of young Americans flew hundreds of raids over Germany, bombing by day in huge formations, attacking industrial plants, oil refineries and cities, in desperately dangerous missions from which the numbers who never returned was appallingly high. But between Pearl Harbor and the Normandy landings the bomber war was the only way the Allies could take the way directly to Germany in Europe, making every town and factory the frontline.

* '[A] magnificent history... It is impossible not to be carried along by Miller's passion for his subject' Daily Telegraph
