Reaching for the Stars: A New History of Bomber Command in World War IIby Mark Connelly
Pub. Date: 09/28/2002
Publisher: I. B.Tauris & Company, Limited
This book shows why Bomber Command, in one of the largest and bloodiest campaigns of World War II, with 55,000 aircrew lost and more officer fatalities than in World War I, has received so much attention and yet is still a "lost and black sheep" among British wartime glories. This book provides a new and revisionary narrative of the campaign and is both a military history and an investigation of how the modern image has come about.
Author Biography: Mark Connelly has been British Academy Lecturer in History at Lancaster University and is now Reuters Lecturer in Media and Propaganda History at the University of Kent.
