Summary
1943 saw the tide of war change fully in the Allies' favour. The Axis powers were in retreat on most fronts. North Africa was conquered and this gave the Allies the ability to fly one way over Europe, reaching parts once too far from Allied airbases, including the Romanian oil fields. Italy was invaded in 1943 and preparations were well in hand for D-day, while the Dambusters raid destroyed the Ruhr dams. The daytime bombing of Germany by the Americans and the nighttime destruction by the RAF was having a huge effect on infrastructure and the ability of the Germans to wage war, but also having a huge impact on the German people. Here, Archard continues his story of the air war, with many rare images covering all aspects of the battle for air supremacy that would ultimately help win the war for the Allies
