Round the Clock is about the combined Anglo-American day-night bombing offensive against Nazi Germany in World War II. It is about the men who made up the aircrews that flew the bombers of the Royal Air Force and the U.S. Army Air Forces in that epic campaign. RAF Bomber Command under Air Chief Marshal Arthur ('Bomber') Harris was deeply involved in the concept and practice of wide-pattern attacks on principal German targets, attacks carried out in the dark of night. Those who flew the bombing missions of the RAF and USAAF from British airfields in World War II lived through an utterly unique time and experience, incomparable to any before or since. That experience, both in and out of combat, is the essence of Round the Clock.
