This is essential reading for anybody interested in Bomber Command's role in WWII & the man who led it - even (or possibly especially) for somebody who thinks the way the bomber force was used was wrong.
Harris makes his points clearly but does not overstress them. For example he puts on record the fact that while he believed in area bombing it was his superiors (including Churchill) who established it & wanted it pursued. The way they then turned their backs on the force at the end of the war was a disgrace.
His comments in conclusion, including his condemnation of the role of battleships in the War, are fascinating particularly given the waste of enormous sums of money on the white elephant for which we have no planes.
The fault for which he has never been forgiven was, in fact, his habit of pointing out uncomfortable truths.
