Abstract:

"For decades it has been assumed that the Allied bombing of Dresden - a cultured city famous for its china, chocolate, and fine watches - was militarily unjustifiable, an act of retribution for Germany's ceaseless bombing of London and other parts of England." "Now, Frederick Taylor's research offers a completely new examination of the facts and reveals that Dresden was a highly militarized city actively involved in the production of military armaments and communications. Incorporating first-hand accounts, contemporaneous press material and memoirs, and never-before-seen government records, Taylor proves the very real military threat Dresden posed - and how a legacy of propaganda shrouded the truth for sixty years."--Jacket.
