Until the United States entered the Second World War, the burden of The Strategic Bombing of Germany had fallen on England's Royal Air Force Bomber Command. The enormous losses suffered by Bomber Command during the early stages of the war led British planners to shift from daylight bombing to night bombing. Night bombing meant that some targets could not be struck with the precision needed to guarantee a lasting interruption of war production. During the short summer nights a number of strategic targets in Southern Germany and Northern Italy could not be reached from England during the hours of darkness and therefore could not be bombed at all.
