Indeed deadly

It really showed just how cowardly the act of bombing Dresden was, wether or not the pilots actually new the "state of play" in the city we shall never know.but to indiscriminately kill all those civilians in one act of war, shows just how cruel war can be. We those that are left must learn a strong lesson from reading these ghastly statistics. God help us to ensure nothing like Dresden can be repeated, not by the British.
