During my twenties I spent quite a lot of time doing serious research on the Allied bombing campaign in Europe. In addition to the usual book and publication digging, I interviewed a few former Bomber Command aircrew; after all, they "were there".

The whole subject is controversial, certainly that of "area bombing".

British writer Martin Middlebrook has published a few books on various bomber operations/missions. I spoke with him during one of my trips to the UK, and I regard his work as exemplary of the type.
