CC59153 Corgi   Forward March Figure - Bomber Harris (1/32 Scale) £ 0.00
      Out of stock
     
  Superb 1/32 scale hand painted metal figure of Marshal of the Royal Air Force Sir Arthur Travers Harris, 1st Baronet GCB OBE AFC (13 April 1892 5 April 1984)
Commonly known as "Bomber" Harris by the press, and often within the RAF as "Butcher" Harris, he was Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief (AOC-in-C) of RAF Bomber Command (from early 1943 holding the rank of Air Chief Marshal)during the latter half of World War II. In 1942 the Cabinet agreed to the "area bombing" of German cities. Harris was tasked with implementing Churchill's policy and supported the development of tactics and technology to perform the task more effectively. Harris assisted British Chief of the Air Staff Marshal of the Royal Air Force Charles Portal in carrying out the United Kingdom's most devastating attacks against the German infrastructure.

Harris's preference for area bombing over precision targeting in the last year of the war remains controversial, partly because by this time many senior Allied air commanders thought it less effective and partly for the large number of civilian casualties and destruction this strategy caused in Continental Europe. While the Butt Report found that in 1940 and 1941, only one in three attacking aircraft got within five miles (eight km) of their target, many technical and training improvements such as H2S radar and the Pathfinder force were implemented later on in the war.
Now sold out everywhere and extremely hard to find. I am led to belive that there should be an information card with this model, which is unfortunately not present.
