Mark Clodfelter. Beneficial Bombing: The Progressive Foundations of American Air Power, 1917-1945. Lincoln and London: University of Nebraska Press, 2010. The American bomber dream: a more humane kind of warfare through precision bombing. Looks like a worthy update to Michael Sherry's The Rise of American Air Power.

Randall T. Wakelam. The Science of Bombing: Operational Research in RAF Bomber Command. Toronto, Buffalo and London: University of Toronto Press, 2009. Eager to read this one. It's chock-full of informationy goodness, such as an appendix illustrating Bomber Command's different bombing techniques, from Shaker 1 through Wanganui 2.
