On the right is the story of "Bomber Harris", also known as Sir Arthur Travers Harris, Marshal of the Royal Air Force (1892 – 1984) between the years 1942 through 1945. It was Harris who was the daily tormentor of Nazi Germany, striving relentlessly to bring an end to German aggression by bombing their home front without pity.
This article tells the tale of Harris the soldier and Harris the man: his W.W. I experiences, his inter-war training and Washington posting, his W.W. II contributions as Air Marshal as well as his life as a family man:
"The Germans call him "Murderer Harris"...He finished the First World War as a major at twenty-six. He began the second as an air Vice-Marshal at forty-seven...All Western Europe is Harris' battleground. Each misnamed raid is actually a major engagement. No commanding general in modern history, not even Napoleon, directed so many major battles as Harris."
