Review This Book
Maj Gorman examines the problems encountered by XX and XXI Bomber Commands in employing the B-29 against Japan, initially from India and China, later from the Marianas. The technologically advanced bomber was expected to be the technological solution to attacking Japan across long distances. XX and XXI commands, however, found that employing the big bomber was not as simple as planners had hoped. Their problems included technological malfunctions, doctrinal shortcomings, and unintended consequences.
