How the Allies bombed Hitler and Nazis into submission

The animation was created by the Imperial War Museum to mark the re-opening of the American Air Museum. It shows the progress of the Allied strategic bombing campaign against the Germans from 1939 to 1945. The map is designed to highlight way the Royal Air Force and the United States Army Air Forces worked together. Bombing was essential to win the war for the Allies but has been criticised for killing thousands of civilians.
