Fire and fury ww2 book
Sales of wrong 'Fire and Fury' book are making people crack upI found this book in my library's collection while looking for the recent similarly-named Trump book by Michael Wolff. Randall Hansen's book is a very good read for anyone who might be interested in the Allied bombing of Germany in WW2 ; very well researched, well written, rational and informative. There is considerable focus on the dreadful experiences of people in the cities under attack, and the bombing and defense roles of significant Allied and Nazi leaders. You won't find much information about the aircraft and crews of either side, so for this part of the subject look elsewhere. The letters Hansen has included between RAF Bomber Command leader Arthur "Bomber" Harris and his boss Charles Portal demonstrate Harris's belief that bombing, burning, and destruction of enemy cities would lead to a collapse of morale, ending the war. Harris used his targeting discretion to continue sending Bomber Command to area bomb German cities well into , all too frequently circumventing Portal's better-informed direction toward strategic targets including oil production and refining.

An enlightening and utterly convincing re-examination of the allied aerial bombing campaign and of civilian German suffering during World War II-an essential addition to our understanding of world history.
