Description
Whirlwind is the first book to tell the complete, awe-inspiring story of the Allied air war against Japan-the most important strategic bombing campaign in history. From the audacious Doolittle raid in 1942 to the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In 1945, award-winning historian Barrett Tillman recounts the saga from the perspectives of American and British aircrews who flew unprecedented missions over thousands of miles of ocean, as well as of the generals and admirals who commanded them. Whirlwind is one of the last histories of World War II written with the contribution of men who fought in it. With unexcelled macro- and micro-perspectives, standing as a reference on the war, on multi-service operations, and on the human capacity for individual heroism and national folly.
