Historian Professor Richard Overy tells the full story of the bombing campaigns that dominated the war in Europe and the terrible, military, technological and ethical issues that drove all sides into an abyss. Overy gives the first full account of bombing campaigns that affected Europe. He shows how the more bombing failed to deliver a knockout blow, the greater the effort that went into bombing cities and civilian populations, eroding the ethical and moral constraints that had once operated for British, American and German forces.

Overy is professor of history at the University of Exeter and author of a series of books on World War II and wider European disasters, including The Dictators: Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Russia, winner of the prestigious Wolfson Prize and of the Hessell-Tiltman Prize.
