Editorial Reviews

David Finley
This is a "big picture" view of the European air war. It is not a collection of personal stories or battle accounts, but rather an analysis of how decisions at the highest levels about material and resources dictated the outcome in what became a titanic war of attrition. This book will contribute substantially to anyone's understanding of the war.
