022311 - NO PROUDER PLACE: Canadians and the Bomber Command Experience 1939-45
By David L Bashow
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.
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. The story tells 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.
Well illustrated throughout, some colour, maps and diagrams
