The Combined Bomber Offensive 1943-1944: The Air Attack on Nazi Germanyby L Douglas Keeney
The invasion of Occupied Europe loomed but the battle against Nazi Germany was just in its infancy. Fighter production was on the rise, tanks were still rolling off the German production lines, and the early air attacks by the Allies had resulted in meager damage. Clearly a change was in order. In 1943, that change came about through the declaration of a Combined Bomber Offensive which called for the destruction of Germany by air. Long before American soldiers set foot on continental Europe, the airmen of the Eighth Air Force brought the battle to Hitler's Third Reich. This lost history documents the critical year of the air attack on Germany as observed and recorded in 1945.

This book is basic: a dry combination of policy papers,reports, and minimal historic interpretation. I have enjoyed text books more as " historical reads". A great sleep aid. Have decided not to buy the two companion compilations after reading this one.
