Description
On the night of February 13, 1945, more than 800 RAF bombers dropped nearly 1500 tons of high explosive and 1200 tons of incendiaries on Dresden, a German city crowded with refugees; between 40,000 and 50,000 civilians were killed. On the following morning a second attack was carried out by the U.S. Army Air Force, and two more U.S. attacks came on February 15 and March 2. Why, so close to the end of the war, should this beautiful city—a center for fine art and porcelain, with arguably no tactical significance—have been so completely obliterated by the Allies? This book chronicles the development of bombing from the earliest days of aerial warfare through the evolution of strategic bombing, in the context of this controversial raid.
