Fire and Fury The Allied Bombing of Germany 1942 1945 Download ò 104 Historian Randall Hansen shows that the Commander in Chief of Bomber Command Arthur Harris was wedded to an outdated strategy whose success had never been proven; how area bombing not only failed to win the war it probably prolonged it; and that the US campaign which was driven by a particularly American fusion of optimism and morality played an important and largely unrecognized role in delivering Allied victory From the Hardcover edition. Audiobook This is the second book titled Fire and Fury that I read this year and this one is a better book than the other one Michael Wolff s tabloid style account of the early Trump White House This one focuses on the Allied bombing campaign against Nazi Germany during World War II It offers extensive detail of the people involved in the planning and execution of those campaigns as well as those who dealt with the effects of that bombing It can get a bit academic in reading but not a shock given the detail of sources Hansen takes the stance that the bombing was ultimately ineffective in achieving its aims of bringing about the strategic defeat of Germany it promised to do mirroring several key surveys in the immediate aftermath of the war His is critical of all parties involved in the war but does not blame the young men who executed those missions The reader does okay with the material which can get a bit dry at times A book that should be read by airmen across the world at least once but maybe not one to be reread
