Bombing Civilians: A Twentieth-Century History

Bombing Civilians: A Twentieth-Century History - Yuki Tanaka, Marilyn B. Young Photobucket

So, in war, more specifically in an air war: How can we make a distinction between combatants and noncombatants, and why is it morally important to do so?

The question is considered in ten essays, each featuring a given context or concern: various wars, political and institutional agendas, international law, with enough obscure, colorful and personal bits to be truly engaging and disturbing.

Worth reading by those wanting an introduction to the dilemma and those looking to further explore the subject.
