The US destroyed Dresden, Germany, and the civilian population

Dresden in March, 1945

In the final winter of World War II, the eastern German city of Dresden was reduced to rubble, killing tens of thousands and sparking a bitter debate over whether the attack was justified…

Population of the city was largely anyone’s guess as refugees flooded into the city shortly prior to the bombing as Soviet troops advanced to the city’s east, however common estimates put the population at the time of bombings at greater than 650,000.

I won’t waste anyone’s time quoting those who ordered the bombing. I’ve outlived all my friends and relatives who fought in that war…or were victims of the Nazis. None agreed that what we did was justified.
