5.0 out of 5 stars Masterful Account of critical US bombing missions to Germany, 28 Feb. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Schweinfurt-Regensburg Mission: American Raids on 17th August 1943 (Cassell Military Paperbacks) (Paperback)
Martin Middlebrook is undoubtedly the most accessible military historian writing about the strategically significant and subsequently highly controversial Allied strategic bombing campaign over Nazi Germany. In this volume he deploys his customary mix of detailed archival research, interviews with participants, and critical analysis to examine with his usual fluent style, the American daylight bombing raids over the vital German ball bearing and aero works in Schweinfurt and Regensburg. This was a crucial test of the USAAF doctrine that unescorted bomber groups could operate at long range and effectively precision bomb high-value strategic targets. Middlebrook not only provides a detailed and gripping blow by blow account of the raids themselves but also sets them in the context of the wider strategic and tactical debates about the use of airpower as the principal war winning weapon. Erudite, exciting and insightful, this is military history of the highest order appealing to both serious student and general reader alike. Once you've read this one, you'll probably want to go on and buy the set.
