A Detailed Study of the Effects of Area Bombing on Lubeck

Dear colleagues,

for a small research project I am looking for a digiatal copy of above-named work of the United States Strategic Bombing Survey. I am aware of the fact that published versions of this are available at the Library of Congress and certainly also at NARA. But before I am going to order there, I thought it could be worth a try to find a more comfortable way by asking for help here in this brilliant board.

Thanks and kind regards!

Felix

Hello Felix,
USSBS reports were numbered: can you tell us the number of this one please?

Re: A Detailed Study of the Effects of Area Bombing on Lubeck

Hello,


thanks for your help. Sadly, the ebook-version of this website is no longer available. Maybe due to copyright claims? I have to look for an other possibility to get a version. Nonetheless, thank you all very much!

Re: A Detailed Study of the Effects of Area Bombing on Lubeck

Felix - I can't imagine how it could be copyrighted since it's a U.S. Government publication and therefore falls within the public domain. You might try the U.S. Air Force Historical Research Agency (AFHRA) at Maxwell AFB in Montgomery/Alabama where you could ask for several titles on one CD/DVD for a total of $30.00, or try interlibrary loan as many university libraries have the full published set of the USSBS.

Re: A Detailed Study of the Effects of Area Bombing on Lubeck

Felix, Larry: there is another economical solution. A copy is held at the UK National Archives.

File ref = AIR 48/25, 'No.7: detailed study of the effects of area bombing on Lubeck, Germany'.

Since I retired from file copying I send such matters to Lee at this address:

https://www.arcre.com/

... and I am sure he will be able to help at a very reasonable price.


HTH

Re: A Detailed Study of the Effects of Area Bombing on Lubeck

I though the USSBS files were in PDF on the Hyperwar website, but only a part of them are here, almost all on the Pacific theater:
http://www.ibiblio.org/hyperwar/NHC/...bing%20Survey/

There are three files on Japanese cities, roughly the same subject as for Lubeck, so you maybe use it for comparison.

Such government files usually end on Amazon (with just a new cover page), but in your case no luck. I could still find some USBS reports, for about 10$ each.
