Does the Bomber Theory help explain the British policy of Appeasement in the 1920s and 1930s?
A look at the evolution of air power, and the people behind the development of the Bomber Theory. Does the belief that 'the bomber wil always get through' help explain Chamberlain's actions? Does the RAF's need to justify its independence explain defence priorities in the 1920s and 1930s? A novel approach to the topic of Appeasement.
