During the Second World War, Bomber Command of Britain’s Royal Air Force (RAF), working in lockstep with the numbered air forces of the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF), played a vital role in bringing about the ruination and collapse of Hitler’s Third Reich.

Clearly the Allied victory was a joint effort by everyone (USSR, USA, Britain, shoutout to Canada), sort of like moving a couch up a couple flights of stairs. But in that scenario the Soviets were definitely the guy at the bottom shouldering most of the weight. 2) the USA never enters the war against Germany, but fights the Japanese in the Pacific. The British face much more problems winning the Atlantic war, taking them far longer to win, making buildup of men and material harder. Ultimately, each of the 3 major powers made significant contributions to the war. The significance of the Russian contribution is in the timing.

RAF Bomber Command was created in 1936 and comprised the RAF's light and heavy bomber squadrons. Over the course of the war, it developed from a limited and relatively ineffective force into a weapon of immense destructive power. It received a major slice of Britain's economic and technological resources, and many of its brightest and best young men.

All sides had victories and defeats throughout World War 2 but the Allies .

All sides had victories and defeats throughout World War 2 but the Allies had the final victory in August 1945. Asked in World War 1, History of Russia. Why was Russias involvement in the war so important to the other Allies? During World War I, Russia's involvement was important to her Allies for primarily one reason. By remaining true to the Triple Alliance, Russia posed a threat to Germany (and the Austro-Hungarian Empire) from the East. The British and Commonwealth victory at Second El Alamein effectiveley crushed the Afrika Korps and Luftwaffe in north Africa. This meant that the Allies could now invade Sicily and Italy.

176p, index, B&W and color photos and illustrations throughout. None But The Brave provides a fresh look at the Allied bombing campaign against the European Axis powers during the Second World War. This bombing of the Third Reich and its allies was part of Britain's overall war strategy to take the offensive to the enemy. In doing so, it created a second front that bled off resources from the enemy's campaign against the Soviets, and it required massive amounts of manpower and materiel to be diverted from the primary war efforts to both confront the threat and to address the damage sustained. It dealt telling blows to the Axis economic and industrial infrastructure, forcing the decentralization of Its war industries. Finally, It helped pave the way, through destruction of enemy air defence assets, oil resources, and transportation networks, for a successful invasion of Germany through northwest Europe. The book is also a celebration of the aircrew experience and the essential resolve and fortitude that was demonstrated by these campaigners throughout the conflict, in the face of frequently daunting perils and odds against survival.
