    After the German bombing of Coventry the author, Frederick Taylor writes The damage inflicted on the cities infrastructure had lasted far longer and causedlong term difficulties for war production than the actual bombing of the industrial plants This statement on page 188 of my copy was constantly on my mind while reading this very good book

    Wow 6 5 stars This account and discussion of one of the most controversial things that the Allies committed in the Second World War is chilling.Which ever side of the fence you sit, read this book before you comment or opine The last chapter provoked me to think again on what I believe.War is wrong and I hope that I never have to make any decisions

    Well rounded history of the controversial bombing of Dresden between February 13 and 15, 1945 The allies showered Dresden with 3,900 tons of high explosive bombs and incendiary devices, resulting in a horrendous firestorm killing up to 25,000 per thereasonable, non German propagandist estimates released immediately after the bombing Some say the Florence

    Goebbels propaganda portraited the destruction of Dresden as a war crime After the war, the British felt it was a bombing too far, and today anti war and German far right activists, Russian and anti British propagandists are using it again as a propaganda tool.The general public, me included, knows little about it.I tried to find outand I was mesmerised by the objectivity of this book, ver

    I bought this book in a bookstore in Dresden, itself Having visited the city as part of a recent trip to Germany, I was mesmerized by its beauty and haunted by its past I had to learnIn particular, I wanted a better factual framework for tackling the long debated question of whether the allied bombing of Dresden, at the end of the war, when Germany was all but defeated, was justified Taylor s boo
