Overview

At the close of the Second World War both the RAF and the United States Army Air Forces sent teams of investigators to the continent of Europe to try and assess the effectiveness of Allied strategic bombing. The British Survey was originally classified and is published here for the first time. By combining the original Report and an analysis of its strengths and weaknesses, together with a short history of the genesis of the British Survey, this work is an important contribution to the continuing historical debate over the effects of the strategic bombing offensive in the Second World War.

At the end of World War II, British and U.S. governments sent investigators to Europe to assess the effectiveness of Allied strategic bombing. The U.S. assessment was publicly published almost immediately, however the British findings, at Churchill's request, were largely withheld. This volume contains the complete British report, without commentary or kibitzing, save for the expert opinions expressed in two forewords and the introduction.
