Haywood Hansell helped develop stategic bombing theory and he was the first commander of the WWII XXI Bomber Command. Hansell's command attacked mainland Japan with B-29 bombers concentrating on aircraft manufacturing targets. Hansell was replaced by Curtis LeMay who concentrated on low level area incendiary bombing of Japanese cities.
This memior makes a cogent argument that precision strategic bombing could have efficiently destroyed Japan's ability to wage war without incinerating the roughly 330,000 Japanese civilians that died from the incendiary, and atomic bomb, attacks. This work is very well written, and documented.
