The bombing of civilian targets during the years from to represented a progression in scale--from three figure death tolls to five figure death tolls--rather than a progression in kind from what was achieved in the First World War, and the jury is still out as to the question of strategic bombing's true contribution to Allied victory in A number of Harrows were used to ferry personnel and equipment between aerodromes.

      With hindsight we can look at the illustration of the Hurricat launch and see that is was wrong, yet the vast majority of the readers of the books would not have known any better. In combat it is true that it was a one way mission, for the aircraft at least, but the vast majority of launches were for training purposes which were made within sight of land and after which the aircraft landed safely at a friendly airfield. And it may also provide the Syrian president Bashar al Assad and his allies with sufficient grounds to bring war crimes charges against Britain.
