The bombing campaign conducted against Germany and German-occupied Europe in the Second World War was, and remains, one of the most controversial operations of the entire war. Much of Bomber Command’s effort was what was defined as ‘area’ bombing, in which whole cities or districts were targeted.

Luftangriff auf Berlin, die Schaltzentrale Hitlers, war für die Alliierten des Zweiten Weltkrieges ein strategisch wichtiges Angriffsziel. Nicht nur militärische und industrielle Anlagen wurden bombardiert: Ziel war es auch, Berlins Bevölkerung zu demoralisieren. Luftangriff auf Dresden Erschütternde Filmaufnahmen, zum Teil in Farbe, dokumentieren die systematische Zerstörung Dresdens seitens der Alliierten Streitkräfte.. Der Vernichtung der Stadt, ihrer Menschen und auch ihrer bedeutenden Kunstschätze lag ein Plan von Arthur „Bomber“ Harris zugrunde, der den Bewohnern Dresdens kaum eine Möglichkeit ließ zu überleben. Der Durchhaltewille des deutschen Kriegsgegners sollte durch die planvolle Ausradierung seiner Städte gebrochen werden. Luftangriff auf Hamburg Den Höhepunkt der Kriegsschrecken musste Hamburg im Sommer 1943 erleben. In der Hansestadt wütete nach Bombardierung der Alliierten der erste Feuersturm der Geschichte. Luftangriff auf Köln Operation Millennium: 1048 Bomber, beladen mit drei Millionen Tonnen Bomben, sollen Köln dem Erdboden gleichmachen. So der Plan des Oberkommandierendem der Royal Air Force, Arthur Harris während des Zweiten Weltkrieges. Neben militärischen und industriellen Zielen sollten auch Wohngebiete nicht verschont bleiben

The Avro Lancaster is one of the most well known and revered aircraft in aviation history. The RAF's heavy bomber was developed during the early years of World War 2 when Britain's only means of taking the offensive to Germany was through the Royal Air Force's strategic night-bombing campaign. The first Lancaster mission was in 1942, and the aircraft was an instant success. Powered by four Rolls-Royce Merlin engines, its performance outstripped its rivals. By the end of the war, the aircraft had carried out 156,000 missions and dropped over 600,000 tons of high-explosive bombs and more than 51 million incendiary bombs.

Night after night through six long years of war, RAF Bomber Commands squadrons pounded away at the cities of Nazi Germany in a determined effort to bring the Third Reich to its knees. Pitted against Bomber Harris's aircrews and aircraft were some of the most effective and deadly defenses the world has ever seen. For Bomber Command to launch a 'maximum effort' raid on the Ruhr by night, or a low-level strike on an enemy target in occupied Europe by day, it involved a huge amount of planning. Who decided the policy? Why, when and where were the airfields built? How was the overall command structure organized, from the Air Council down to individual squadron level? How did the RAF train its bomber crews? What aircraft did they fly and what weapons did they use? Who were their commanders and who were the men that made up the rank-and-file of the Command? How was a raid planned and once it was launched what happened? This is the first book of its kind to present such a comprehensive overview of Bomber Command's wartime organization and operations, and is fully illustrated with a fine selection of archive photographs.
