Bomber Command
A Select Bibliography
by Brian Grafton

This bibliography is select in every sense of the word, and will grow as the Bomber Command topics are completed. All are either in my own collection or have been used to refresh my mind as I write: hence the preponderant focus on the British war. As the USAAF becomes involved (really, not until 1943), volumes relating to their efforts will be added to the bibliography as applicable. In no case should this be considered a complete list of volumes on the war in the air.
