There are a lot of books published in the UK on Bomber Command in WW2.You could start your search at The Imperial War Museum, I'm sure they have a Website.

The general consensus is that the air offensive over German cities diverted German war resources into a defensive role.which weakened their ability to hold their military lines across Europe. But the theory that you could bomb the Germans into submission proved false as was the case with the English people. If anything it strengthened their resolve particularly the Luftwaffe who fought ferociously in the air to protect their families on the ground, again like the RAF in the battle of Britain. At the height of the bombing campaign the survival rate of crew in Bomber Command was one in three.

Hope this helps.
