Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525242627, Hardcover)During the night of February 13, 1945, the Bomber Command of the Royal Air force launched an all-out attack on Dresden. Three raids later--including one by American Flying Fortresses--Dresden was rubble. More than 35,000 people lost their lives; countless treasures of art and architecture were demolished.
What did it accomplish? Was it necessary? Why was it done? Alexander McKee tackles these questions and lets survivors give their answers.
The result is a gripping account of what it was like to be in the flaming streets and smoke filled cellars of Dresden and in the cockpits and gun turrets of the warplanes overhead.
