Product description

Review

A real triumph: shocking, yet sensitive and supremely fair-minded. This is a wonderful book about hellish events.

(Richard Holmes)

The story of that hellish summer night is one Lowe tells well, unbliningly, exactly as he should...a tour de force (Sunday Times)

Compelling, startling and gripping. The definitive account of a great tragedy (A.C. Grayling Financial Times)

Admirable, impeccably researched and engagingly written...deserves its place on the shelves (Daily Telegraph)

Brilliantly researched. Lowe has produced many new first-hand accounts which give a human face to a tale of epic destruction (Daily Express)

Scrupulous...sensitive to all the paradoxes of the bombing war (Richard Overy Literary Review)

Exemplary (Observer)

Altogether a terrific book and work of research (Captain Eric 'Winkle' Brown, WWII pilot and author of 'Wings on My Sleeve')

Well written, meticulously researched...gripping and holds the attention effortlessly - Keith Lowe says he found it a compelling subject on which to write, I found it compelling to read (British Army Review)

Balanced, thoughtful, engaging...Inferno is well researched and well written. Admirably balances the testimony of the bombers and the bombed (History Today)
