The Battle of Hamburg: The Firestorm Raid (Cassell Military Paperbacks)
The Battle of Hamburg: The Firestorm Raid (Cassell Military Paperbacks)
by Martin Middlebrook
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars The most successful of all the world war 2 bombing raids, 3 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If one forgets the Hamburg docks which were hardly touched this was a super raid by the brave men of Bomber Command under Sir Arthur ( Butch ) Harris this was a ghreat success

A fully detailed account of the most successful Bombing Raid in the whole war. Forgetting Dresden this is top of the league for deaths of Germans in The War - The thousand raid on Cologne might have been more intense but the design of the City of Hamburg together with the unusual weather that night made this so wonderful - Happily we killed close on ten times as many Germans in our Raids as they did on us.
