The Royal Air Force (RAF) Bomber Command played a crucial role in World War II by carrying out bombing operations against Nazi Germany. Their missions were dangerous and often deadly, and their commander from 1942, Arthur ' Bomber' Harris, faced harsh criticism for the civilian casualties that resulted from their bombings.

The success of their tactics and technology paved the way for modern air warfare, and their brave actions helped to ultimately bring about Allied victory in the war.
