Promotional Information

This is the only full-scale account of the strategic air offensive against Germany published in the last 20 years--and the only one that treats the British and Americans equally. Levine gets past a simple account of what we did to them and describes the target systems and German countermeasures in detail, providing exact yet dramatic accounts of the great bomber operations: the Ruhr dams, Ploesti, Regensburg, and Schweinfurt.

Reviews

"Perhaps Levine's most valuable contribution is incorporating in a single book the doctrinal and technological aspects of the Allied bombing campaigns. The reviewer found The Strategic Bombing of Germany a difficult book to put down and recommends it to both the serious airpower student and the casual reader."-The Friday Review of Defense Literature "Undergraduates as well as general readers will enjoy this campaign."-Choice "A well-written summary of the secondary material on this important, neglected, and controversial subject. Therefore it will be read by many and consequently must be seriously considered by historians and specialists."-The Journal of American History ?Undergraduates as well as general readers will enjoy this campaign.?-Choice ?A well-written summary of the secondary material on this important, neglected, and controversial subject.
