“Air Raid!” – The Bombing Campaigns Of World War II by Tom McGowen is a brief and informative book that a juvenile or an adult can enjoy. This book is a not too an overly detailed account of the development of the airplane as a formidable weapon starting during World War I. Did you know that Italian airmen were the first to drop grenades from scout planes on Turkish troops? Shortly after WW I started, the Germans bombed a city – ‘Paris.’ Learn about the difference between tactical vs. strategic bombing. You will read about the Battle of Britain when Hitler made one of his greatest mistakes, he switched from bombing Britain’s Fighter and Bomber Command airports to English cities. Enjoy the chapters on - how Britain strikes back; when America joins the war, the last days of Germany, and the bombing of Japan. Don’t miss reading Tom McGowan’s books: ‘Sink the Bismarck,’ ‘Germany’s Lighting War’ – Panzer Divisions of World War II, and ‘Carrier War,’ three more raise your interest in History type of books. Senior Doctor-at-Bass! D. A.
