The Bomber Mafia: A Story Set in War

Recommended Price 
June 2022
About the book: 
A riveting tale of persistence, innovation, and the incalculable wages of war, from the international bestselling author of Talking to Strangers and host of the award-winning podcast  Revisionist History
Most military thinkers in the years leading up to World War II saw the airplane as an afterthought. But a small band of idealistic strategists had a different view. This "Bomber Mafia" asked: What if precision bombing could, just by taking out critical choke points - industrial or transportation hubs - cripple the enemy and make war far less lethal? In  The Bomber Mafia,  Gladwell delves deep into questions of how technology and best intentions collide in the heat of war.
