Textul de pe ultima copertă

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 groundbreaking 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 unequivocally the very real military threat Dresden posed -- and how a legacy of propaganda shrouded the truth for sixty years.


“Deeply affecting ... a bracing rebuke to the myths and propaganda that have painted over the memory of this tragedy.”
“The enigmatic past and the patient muse of history are brilliantly served ... by this blockbuster of a book.”
“Taylor carefully debunks .... the ‘pervasive postwar myth’ ... What emerges is a picture markedly different from conventional accounts.”
“Fascinating....a fine, revealing work of revisionist history. He has also given us a deeply haunting human drama.”
“Compelling ... [Taylor] puts the assault in its proper context to reveal the inherent moral tangle of total war.”
“A riveting narrative account.”
“Compelling ... Mr. Taylor makes a persuasive case that Dresden was not an innocent bystander in the tragedy that was WWII.”
“A strong and provocative work of World War II scholarship.”
“A major contribution to the story of Dresden.”
“ absolutely magnificent work both of scholarship and of narration.”
“[An] authoritative and moving account …. Impeccably documented.”
“In narrative power and persuasion, [Taylor] has paralleled in DRESDEN what Antony Beevor achieved in STALINGRAD.”
“Well-researched, objective and compassionate...Frederick Taylor convincingly sets the record straight.”
“Groundbreaking … [shines] new light on that fateful day and the resulting myths.”
“I thought I knew what happened at Dresden on that fiery day in 1945 -- and then I read this book.”
“Anyone who thinks that during World War Two Dresden manufactured just chinaware must read this penetrating book.”
“A provocative re-examination of the bombing of Dresden ... elgantly written and deeply moving.”
