A map illustrating the impact of the Allied Strategic Bombing Operations against Germany from 1940 to 1945, a sustained aerial campaign conducted by the RAF and USAAF during World War II.

The campaign included notorious raids such as Operation Chastise and the 'Thousand Bomber' raids like Operation Gomorrah, massive bombing operations involving over a thousand aircraft designed to overwhelm German defenses and inflict significant damage on enemy infrastructure and morale.
