1st ed., 1984. Xv + 347 pp., 32 photo-plates + 5 maps. D.j., 23 x 15cm. Spine of d.j., faded o/w Nr.FINE. Marshal of the RAF Sir Arthur T. Harris was one of the greatest operational commanders of World War II, and probably the least honoured. As Commander-in-Chief of Bomber Command from 1942-1945 he was a forceful and highly controversial figure. This book is his official life, written with his full consent and co-operation by one of his own officers. Here, for the first time, are the facts about the part played by Bomber Command, based upon extensive research into German records (including Albert Speer’s personal documents), and into Swiss Intelligence and Diplomatic records of the RAF, the Cabinet Office, and the personal papers of Harris and those who served with him.
