Book description

From Stalingrad to the ports of the French west coast, from Clydeside to Malta, bombing was experienced by millions of ordinary Europeans in the Second World War. Why was bombing undertaken? How did bombed societies survive? Did it actually work?

In The Bombing War, Richard Overy gives the first full narrative account of the aerial devastation of Europe, showing that it changed the course of the war — but not in the way we think. The Bombing War brings together strategy, politics, technology, combat and social policy to understand the real experience of both bombing and being bombed. It strips away the many post-war myths and shows how quickly bombing came to be taken for granted on all sides, with terrible consequences.

 

About the author

Richard Overy is an award-winning British historian who has published extensively on the history of World War II and the Third Reich. He has taught at Cambridge and at King’s College, London.
