This is the definitive biography of one of the most controversial figures of World War II. Sir Arthur Harris remains the target of criticism and vilification by many, while others believe the contribution he and his men made to victory is grossly undervalued. Henry Probert's critical but sympathetic new account draws on recent research and, for this first time, all of Harris's own extensive papers, to give outstanding insight into a man who combined leadership, professionalism and decisiveness with kindness, humor and generosity. Bomber Harris provides the most complete picture of one of the great commanders of modern times and an outstanding military personality of World War II. Air Commodore Probert was formerly Head of the Air Historical Branch. Correlli Barnett is a world-renowned historian whose books have been translated into many languages.

Review:

WWII History, May 2007

“Author Henry Probert has shed light on the complex, multifaceted Sir Arthur in this insightful, penetrating biography ... Harris comes to life on the pages through Probert’s judicious use of quotes and correspondence that demonstrate the commander’s leadership qualities, professionalism, and decisiveness mixed with kindness, humor, and generosity ... Using for the first time Harris’s own extensive papers, Probert paints a complete picture of the man lauded by many and vilified by others – a portrait that both fans and detractors of Sir Arthur will find intriguing.”

Book Description Condition: New. Sir Arthur Harris is one of the most controversial figures of World War II: he remains the target of criticism and vilification by many, while others believe the contribution he and his men made to victory is grossly undervalued. Probert's new biography is the first to draw on all of Harris's own extensive papers. Excellent . . . Probert is equally steadfast both in recognising Harris's shortcomings, and in fighting for vindication of area bombing. This makes for a fair and square yet sympathetic view of Harris. SPECTATOR.
