Our bomber dead equal troop losses
In a 3000 word Order of the day to all ranks of Bomber Command, Air Chief Marshall Sir Arthur Harris says:

“As the count is cleared, those of Bomber Command who gave their lives to bring near to impotence an enemy who had surged in triumph through a continent, and to enable the United Nations to deploy in full array, will be found not less than the total dead of our national invasion armies now in Germany.

In the whole history of our national forces, never have so small a band of men been called to support so long such odds. You indeed bore the brunt…

No Allied nation is clear of your debt.”
