This Day in History
On the this day in 1945, the most
controversial episode in the Allied air war against Germany begins as hundreds
of British bombers loaded with incendiaries and high-explosive bombs descend on
Dresden, a historic city located in eastern Germany. By February 15, the
city was a smoldering ruin and an unknown number of civilians--somewhere
between 35,000 and 135,000--were dead.
