The Bomber Mafia

£20.00

Here is a riveting tale of persistence, innovation, and the incalculable wages of war. Most military thinkers in the years leading up to World War II saw the airplane as an afterthought. But a small band of idealistic strategists had a different view. This ‘Bomber Mafia’ asked: What if precision bombing could, just by taking out critical choke points – industrial or transportation hubs – cripple the enemy and make war far less lethal? In ‘The Bomber Mafia’, Gladwell delves deep into questions of how technology and best intentions collide in the heat of war.
