The Role of the Bomber describes the changing strategic and tactical operations of the bomber from the days of ballooning to the late 1970's. It is a role that has always been significant, but often different from that predicted - surprisingly effective at sea, but unexpectedly limited in the Korean and Vietnam conflicts.
