  •  Just one small point on this... (8+ / 0-)

    It's true that the USAAF's tactical doctrine vs. Germany was for precision bombing whenever possible, and that the British concept of area bombing was mostly resisted within the USAAF's command structure.

    However, area bombing was the accepted USAAF tactic against Japan from the get-go, including Doolittle's own famous raid on Tokyo in 1942. It's generally understood that there was an element of racism involved in this.
