Although essentially issued by the Air Ministry as a desperately needed morale booster in 1941, this book provides a fascinating insight into the background and structure of this vital offensive tool in Britain’s armoury. Illustrated with photographs of aircraft, aircrew and support personnel, it examines the developing role of Bomber Command from the very beginning of hostilities, using diagrams, maps and aerial reconnaissance photographs of targets and results of specific actions to support the detailed text.
