Inhaltsangabe: The Allied bombing of the Third Reich and its allies was part of Britain’s overall war strategy to take the offensive to the enemy. It created a “second front” that bled off resources from the enemy’s Soviet campaign, involving massive amounts of manpower and material just to address the threat. It also dealt telling blows to Germany’s economic and industrial infrastructure, forcing decentralization of its war industries.
Finally, it paved the way, through destruction of the enemy air defenses, oil resources, and transportation networks, for a successful invasion of Germany through Northwest Europe in 1944. No Prouder Place provides a fresh and objective look at the bombing campaign by emphasizing the highly significant role it played in defeating the Axis powers.
It is a story of sustained courage in the face of daunting odds as well as a celebration of the Canadian aircrew experience and its place in wartime Bomber Command. The text contains scores of original recollections from the veterans themselves, interwoven with material from primary, archival and secondary sources. It is illustrated with original artwork by Ron Lowry including color side profiles of selected Bomber Command (from RCAF units) and Luftwaffe aircraft.
