              An exploration of how technology and best intentions collide in the heat of war A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice In The Bomber Mafia, Malcolm Gladwell weaves together the stories of a Dutch genius and his homemade computer, a band of brothers in central Alabama, a Bri...tish psychopath, and pyromaniacal chemists at Harvard to examine one of the greatest moral challenges in modern American history. Most military thinkers in the years leading up to World War II saw the airplane as an afterthought. But a small band of idealistic strategists, the Bomber Mafia, asked: What if precision bombing could cripple the enemy and make war far less lethal? In contrast, the bombing of Tokyo on the deadliest night of the war was the brainchild of General Curtis LeMay, whose brutal pragmatism and scorched-earth tactics in Japan cost thousands of civilian lives, but may have spared even more by averting a planned US invasion. In The Bomber Mafia, Gladwell asks, Was it worth it? Things might have gone differently had LeMay's predecessor, General Haywood Hansell, remained in charge. Hansell believed in precision bombing, but when he and Curtis LeMay squared off for a leadership handover in the jungles of Guam, LeMay emerged victorious, leading to the darkest night of World War II. The Bomber Mafia is a riveting tale of persistence, innovation, and the incalculable wages of war.

              An exploration of how technology and best intentions collide in the heat of war In The Bomber Mafia, Malcolm Gladwell weaves together the stories of a Dutch genius and his homemade computer, a band of brothers in central Alabama, a British psychopath, and pyromaniacal chemists at... Harvard to examine one of the greatest moral challenges in modern American history. Most military thinkers in the years leading up to World War II saw the airplane as an afterthought. But a small band of idealistic strategists had a different view. This Bomber Mafia asked: What if precision bombing could, just by taking out critical choke points--industrial or transportation hubs--cripple the enemy and make war far less lethal? In his podcast, Revisionist History, Gladwell reexamines moments from the past and asks whether we got it right the first time. In TheBomber Mafia, he steps back from the bombing of Tokyo on the deadliest night of the war and asks, Was it worth it? The attack was the brainchild of General Curtis LeMay, whose brutal pragmatism and scorched-earth tactics in Japan cost tens of thousands of civilian lives, but may have spared more by averting a planned US invasion. Things might have gone differently had LeMay's predecessor, General Haywood Hansell, remained in charge. As a key member of the Bomber Mafia, Hansell believed in precision bombing, but his theories had been foiled by bad weather, enemy jet fighters, and human error. When he and Curtis LeMay squared off for a leadership handover in the jungles of Guam, LeMay emerged victorious, leading to the darkest night of World War II. The Bomber Mafia is a riveting tale of persistence, innovation, and the incalculable wages of war.

              Malcolm Gladwell, presentador del podcast Historia Revisionista y autor del libro #1 de las superventas de New York Times Outliers, ofrece una examinacion potente de nuestras interacciones con extranos--y porque frecuentemente nos salen mal. ?Como pudo enganar Fidel Castro a los ...del CIA por una generacion? ?Por que penso Neville Chamberlain que podia confiar en Adolfo Hitler? ?Por que estan incrementado los abusos sexuales en las universidades? ?Nos ensenan las comedias de la television algo equivocado de como nos relacionamos? Hablar con extranos es una aventura intelectual clasicamente Gladwelliano, una excursion retadora y controversial a traves de la historia, la psicologia y los escandalos sacados directamente de las noticias. Reconsidera las decepciones de Bernie Madoff, el juicio de Amanda Knox, el suicidio de Sylvia Plath, el escandalo pedofilia de Jerry Sandusky en la Universidad de Penn State y la muerte de Sandra Bland--sometiendo a la duda nuestra comprension de estas historias y otras. Algo esta muy mal, argumenta Gladwell, con las herramientas y estrategias que utilizamos para entender a las personas desconocidas. Y debido a que no sabemos hablar con extranos, estamos invitando el conflicto y malentendido en formas que tienen un efecto profundo en nuestras vidas y nuestro mundo. En su primer libro desde su bestseller #1, David y Goliat, Malcolm Gladwell ha escrito un fascinante guia para los tiempos turbulentos. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Malcolm Gladwell, host of the podcast Revisionist History and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Outliers, offers a powerful examination of our interactions with strangers--and why they often go wrong. How did Fidel Castro fool the CIA for a generation? Why did Neville Chamberlain think he could trust Adolf Hitler? Why are campus sexual assaults on the rise? Do television sitcoms teach us something about the way we relate to each other that isn't true? Talking to Strangers is a classically Gladwellian intellectual ad

              How a small team of utopian Air Force strategists attempted to win World War II through precision bombing--when in reality, the firebombing of entire cities became America's strategy. A tale of idealists, grim pragmatists, technologists, and the wages of war. For most military th...inkers in the years leading up to World War II, the airplane was just a supplementary weapon, to be used in support of armies on the ground. But a small band of idealistic strategists dreamed of revolutionizing war, making it far less lethal by sending jets into enemy territory, and bombing crucial choke points. Their theories didn't work out against Germany, where they faced bad weather, enemy jet fighters, and human error--but the pilots were true believers, and they moved on to the Pacific War. Again, they failed--due to jet-stream winds, challenging weather patterns, and yet more human error. In the end, only the brutal firebombing of over sixty Japanese cities succeeded in winning a war from the air.
