While other books have addressed various aspects of the subject, such as specific aircraft or warfare in specific wars, this book is the first to take a comprehensive look at strategic bombing from its beginnings to the present. Written by a historian, who is also an expert on the technology of bombing and its application, the work covers the theory, hardware, and operations of strategic bombing. While the author, a former U.S. Air Force pilot, focuses primarily on American aircraft and activities, he includes the strategic bombardment efforts of Great Britain, Germany, and Russia, as he places the topic into a larger context and also covers air-to-surface and surface-to-surface missiles. More than a chronological narrative, this study offers a critical analysis and concludes by calling into question the value of strategic bombardment.
Kenneth P. Werrell, a 1960 graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, flew WB-50 weather reconnaissance aircraft into Pacific typhoons and observed the last American above ground nuclear test. He holds a PhD in history from Duke University and taught at Radford University for twenty-six years, with stints at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College and Air University. His most recent books are Sabres over MiG Alley and Chasing the Silver Bullet.
