Storm From The Skies
By Robert Jackson
In January 1943, Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt met in Casablanca to determine strategy for the next phase of the war.
Among the historical decisions reached that day was to unite the bombing arms of the RAF and the USAAF in order to weaken Hitler’s army. With the aim of significant destruction of the German military, industry, economy and morale, the Casablanca Directive saw Churchill and Roosevelt’s armies raining down bombs over major German cities.
This revealing historical account examines the effects of this decision and assesses the achievements of the strategic aerial bombing offensive from 1943 to 1945. Storm From The Skies is the perfect read for fans of World War 2 and military history.
