A review of the allied bombing campaigns from a moral philosophical perspective. In the first part of the book, Grayling provides a succinct and balanced review of the history of the bombing campaign and the theories underpinning strategic bombing. In the last part, he reviews the moral-philosophical arguments in favour and against strategic bombing that targets civilians. Overall, a worthwhile read from both the historical and philosophical perspectives.
