This was a great little read that I picked up after listening to Gladwell on a panel about the bomber war at the World War II conference in New Orleans last month.  It was a quick read, but a very informative look at the general issues surrounding strategic bombing as practiced in World War II.  It covers ground addressed in more detail in other books, but does so in a different way.

At the conference, I was told that the book was not as good an experience of the subject as the podcast on which it was based was.  And in places you could see the podcast format peek out, such as when someone was quoted extensively, and you could tell that that had been an audio clip in the podcast.  But it wasn’t distracting, and didn’t make me feel that I was reading an inferior version of the story.  and it certainly didn’t stop me from taking the opportunity to get an autographed copy!
