This is an excellent piece of research and writing. It cuts through all the old stories of war time spirit and "We'll meet again" style propaganda. It's all here - the thieves, the deceptions, the making money, the poor preparation, the destruction, the death and the depression. The good stories are there too overall giving an accurate account of how terrible it must have been.
The sheer amount of information in this book does not make it the easiest of listens but if you want to know in-depth about this subject then this is for you. I've given it four stars as it’s such an impressive work but as a casual listen it would be a two or three star book.

A fascinating book that really brings home the reality of a nation at war. The carnage and destruction of our cities is described in detail - and makes me remember too that we did even more to german cities. Well read and full of anecdote and first hand evidence of what it was like on the ground. Only misses out on a fifth star because, perhaps inevitably, the detailed accounts of raids does become repetitive.
