General Analysis


  • The following images are from the records of the United States Strategic Bombing Survey (Pacific), Japanese Air Target Analyses, 1942-45 (NARA M1653), downloaded from Footnote.com, there described as:
    "Contemporary analyses of the Allied bombing strategy in aerial attacks on Japanese targets during World War II. Tactical mission reports, aircraft action reports, tabulations of attack and bombing data, and photo intelligence reports detail effects on the Japanese infrastructure, including the petroleum, shipping, armament, and transportation industries. Hundreds of aerial photographs and many maps are found within the analyses sections and in the prolific 'Target Photographs' section."
