BBC News - Sir Arthur 'Bomber' Harris interview uncovered
For those that cannot access BBC Iplayer, it seems according to Harris he was acting under orders as regards area bombing.
"When you took over, were you given any specific directives?"
"Oh yes, I lived in a shower of directives, the directive was the one when I took over that I wasn't to aim at anything
unless ordered to do so, except to blast the German cities as a whole."
