Japanese air target anlaysis

We just got finished digitizing 7,800 pages of US Japanese Air Target Analyses (subscription required) for the first time on the web. It makes for interesting reading.

It reviews the Allied bombing strategy in aerial attacks on Japanese targets during World War II. It includes mission reports, details about targets, bombing data and hundreds reconnaissance photos.

This is is literally a formula for destruction used by planners to gauge expected damage on Japanese targets: 

WW2: Formula for destruction

This is a generalized topographical map of of the island:

I’m looking for a reporters, historians, history buffs out there who find this interesting. If so, leave a me a note in comments, and I’ll provide you complete access.
