Looking at the key but relatively neglected campaign of 1943 this book offers a thorough and nuanced reassessment of the raf bomber offensive at a time when the war in europe still hung in the balance. Raf bomber command controlled the rafs bomber forces from 1936 to 1968 along with the united states army air forces it played the central role in the strategic bombing of germany in world war ii. Aircraft navigation and guidance during the summer of 1943 bomber command equipped its aircraft with h2s a device which scanned the terrain for several miles around the aircraft and presented navigators with what was virtually a map of the ground showing towns rivers lakes and coastlines. 55573 young men died flying with bomber command during world war two thats more than those who serve in the entire royal air force today most who flew were very young the great majority still in their late teens
