Apocalypse 1945: The Destruction of Dresden

August 24 2006 David Irving, Focal Point Publications (January 1995)

60 years ago, on the evening of February 13, 1945, an in-famed attack began against a defenseless German city, Dresden, one of the greatest cultural centers of northern Europe.Within less than 14 hours, not only was it reduced to flaming ruins, but an estimated one-third of its inhabitants, possibly as many as half a million, had perished in what was possibly the worst massacre of all time.

In this work, a considerably revised and updated edition of his famous book THE DESTRUCTION OF DRESDEN, the author shows how the Dresden raid drew on each of the earlier fire-storm raids on Germany, those on Hamburg, Kassel, Darmstadt and Brunswick, and then combined the vital elements of success. 

"This book tells, dispassionately and honestly, the story of a deeply tragic example, in time of war, of man's inhumanity to man. Let us hope that the horrors of Dresden and Tokyo, Hiroshima and Hamburg, may drive home to the whole human race the futility, savagery, and utter uselessness of modern warfare." - Robert Saundby
