Operation Pointblank was a 1943 plan to use daylight strategic bombing to draw the Luftwaffe into a campaign of attrition. In a sense, the bombers were bait. The defending Jagdflieger flung themselves at the bombers, braving 100’s of heavy machine guns.

In whole or in part, this book addresses a fascinating campaign of the European air war.
