Overview

As an episode of the war-themed television documentary program Battlefield, War File: Battlefield - Air War Over Germany details the various components of the WWII Allies' air-based assault against Nazi Germany. The program commences by underscoring the fact that the Allies (led by the U.S. and Great Britain) sought to weaken the Nazis by crushing civilian morale for the Reich and aggressively interrupting the production of German war supplies. Their overall strategy involved carrying out a Strategic Bombing Campaign over Europe; while successful, it also killed thousands of civilians and Allied soldiers, prompting a tremendous amount of controversy from observers and critics. This program profiles the military and governmental personnel responsible for the campaign, the strategies employed during the air war, a discussion of the weaponry and strategies involved, and much more, while positing the entire conflict in the larger historical framework of World War II.

I am a big fan for the Battlefield series, and the recent availability of a new &amp quot to me&amp quot title was a pleasant surprise. So I am sorry to report that &amp amp quot Air War Over Germany&amp amp quot falls far short of the standards set by its predecessors. Padded with repetitions &amp quot ex. Bomber Command's leadership succession was presented four&amp quot !&amp quot different times&amp quot , loaded with inaccuracies, and marred by ommission of important parts of the campaign &amp quot ex. barely a mention of the role played by Allied escort fighters, or lack thereof&amp quot this title should be avoided by &amp amp quot Battlefield&amp amp quot collectors. If you need to see a documentary on the bombing of Germany in WWII, chech out the chapter &amp amp quot Whirlwind&amp amp quot on volume 2 of the still unsurpassed &amp amp quot The World At War.&amp amp quot
