Reaching for the Stars: A New History of Bomber Command in World War II

Mark Connelly, Author I. B. Tauris & Company $47 (256p) ISBN 978-1-86064-591-4
The British Bomber Command logged 55,000 of its own dead before the war's end, and had killed over 500,000 German civilians and destroyed 3.37 million houses in the process. In Reaching For The Stars: A New History of Bomber Command in World War II, University of Kent media and propaganda history lecturer Mark Connelly further examines the beleaguered reputation of the Command, and delves into its construction and bases. He places the Command's actions in the context of the bombings of London and Coventry, and speculates that without the use of the force, Churchill would not have survived as Prime Minister. ( July)
