I think the best single volume regarding air operations in Europe remains Richard Overy's The Air War. Tami Davis Biddle's Rhetoric and Reality in Air Warfare is also useful regarding theory and practice for the Allies. McFarland's and Newton's To Command the Sky is useful for evaluating 1943-1944. Robin Neilland's The Bomber War has some issues, but is a very good place to start to get the gist of the story and find good sources. Finally, Conrad Crane's Bombs, Cities, and Civilians might be a good book to look at. To put it all in perspective and to gain insights on strategic bombing theory, practice, and results, Kenneth Werrell's new volume, Death form the Heavens: A History of Strategic Bombing is excellent.
