The Development of the use of Strategic Bombers Part I on Zoom
with Mark Albertson 

Scheduled for those who work during the day

And for those who don’t drive at night

Because of World War I, a growing group of airmen saw the strategic use of airpower as bringing war to the enemy, as opposed to the tactical use of airpower which these airmen thought hamstrung the airplane and air crews by being under the command of ground officers. During the 1920s and 1930s, airpower began to take on an importance of its own.  And so, by World War II, the strategic bomber came into its own-the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, Consolidated B-24 Liberator, Boeing B-29 Superfortress, the British Handley Page Halifax, Avro Lancaster.  The United States and Britain took the lead in developing strategic bombing.  Germany, Japan and the Soviet Union took different routes which will be explained.
