A superb book that I wish I had read 6 weeks ago before I started teacher Religion and Peace to those Year 12s of mine. A clear analysis of the historical, statistical and philosophical issues raised by area bombing, Grayling writes with some objectivity but great passion in reaching his conclusion. Some of this I knew already, but the aggregation of information was masterly and – sixty years on – one can only agree with his conclusions. The implications are, of course, clear for our age, but obviously ignored by the powers that be.
