The Bombers and the Bombed

Allied Air War over Europe, 1940-1945

Richard Overy, Penguin, 2014 Beav. 940.544

Anti-population and anti-factory bombing did not slow war production until late 1944. Anti-transportation and anti-fuel-supply bombing had great effect ... after that began.

Inaccurate bombing killed half a million civilians, including many French and Dutch and Belgians in the vicinity of war factories.

Overall message: Aerial bombing is inaccurate and less effective than claimed. Duh.
