Letter: Neither glory nor guilt for the heroesof Bomber Command

GEOFFREY Wheatcroft's article implies that the only effect of the bombing was the futile destruction of cities and the killing of non-combatants. A better authority might be Albert Speer, the German armaments minister, who wrote in prison in Spandau: 'The Allied bombing campaign was a true second front. It cost us the equivalent of 6,000 tanks and 10,000 field guns.'
