The Early Years (1939-1940) At the start of the Second World War in 1939, Bomber Command faced four problems.
RAF Bomber Command
The Means of Victory (1941) In 1941, the Butt Report revealed the extent of bombing inaccuracy (Churchill recognised this as a very serious paper and seemed to require urgent attention)
New Beginnings (1942) In 1942, the main workhorse aircraft of the later part of the war came into service. The Halifax and the Lancaster.
Leading the way and marking the targets for the bombers overhead, were the newly formed Pathfinder squadrons.
Reaping the Whirlwind (1944) Sir Arthur Bomber Harris predicted that the Nazis have sowed the wind and now they would reap the whirlwind.
The Road to Victory (1945) - The peak of Bomber Command operations occurred in the raids of March 1945, when its squadrons dropped the greatest weight of bombs for any month in the war
