Never too late for the truth

by ragmaniac on Jun 13, 2013

I first want to mention the author, A C Grayling. Perhaps due to having learned English as a second language, I noted with great astonishment and pleasure that Mr. Grayling's style of writing is about as refined as that of very few non-fiction English language writers I have been able to read. Without any superfluous jargon, Mr. Grayling was able to convey to me in great detail the British RAF Bomber Command offensive against Germany from 1939 to 1945 and its moral implications. No prior reading of any other author of this subject has fulfilled this task as precisely and as thoroughly as Mr. Grayling. Undoubtedly the subject may have only a limited number of interested readers, but due to my own childhood presence as a bombing victim in Frankfurt/M during all those years, I was not able to lay this book down until the very end of the story, a story filled with carefully researched details and judgments about the area bombing offensive on almost every German city. The accuracy with which Mr. Grayling has researched this subject is nothing short of stunning, and it is particularly noteworthy that it comes from a British writer who leaves no ideas unexplored, in particular matters of morality that have been avoided in many other books about this subject, particularly by authors coming from nations that were victors in this war. Anyone with an interest in important details of the air war against Germany and its moral implications will find this volume quite interesting, and perhaps even somewhat disturbing. This last fact alone makes the book a very important contribution to the WWII library. Thank you, Mr. Grayling for your fine example of careful, well-developed contribution to modern history.
