Book review – Operation Pointblank 1944: Defeating the Luftwaffe

Operation Pointblank 1944: Defeating the Luftwaffe (Campaign 236)
Steven J. Zaloga
Osprey Publishing
2011

What it’s about:

The decisive American air campaign to achieve air supporiority over Europe during World War II. This books is an analytical study at the strategic and operational levels of warfare. It’s not a book about airplanes, pilots and “there I was” accounts of aerial combat.

What I liked about the book:

  • Analytical approach.
  • Provides a thorough understanding of the strategic impact of the campaign on the conduct of the war.
  • Color maps of several significant USAAF Eight Air Force bombing raids.

What could have been done better:

  • Nothing that I can think of.

Summary:

A superb book.

Rating:

5 stars out of a possible 5.
