This review is from: Dresden: A Survivor's Story (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
Victor Gregg has a harrowing story to tell. He pulls no punches. The RAF/USAF raids on Dresden in February 1945 have been the subject of many accounts, of course, but not all from personal experience. Like many Britons who experienced it as POWs or, more significantly, as Bomber Command pilots, it still nags at Victor Gregg's conscience. How could we commit such a war crime while supposedly standing for higher moral conduct than the Nazis? Many of the bomber pilots never reconciled themselves to what they had been required to do by Churchill and Harris: there was no military or strategic justification for the destruction of Dresden and the incineration or tens of thousands of its inhabitants and refugees.
