5.0 out of 5 stars Any of my words are inadequate, 13 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Dresden: A Survivor's Story (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
This is only the equivalent of 36 print pages in length, but the brevity is part of what makes this account so stunning. The product information sets the scene. Mr Gregg describes the destruction of Dresden in straightforward terms. This is very, very disturbing stuff - but it should be read. I can only imagine that Mr Gregg had the mental fortitude to get through these experiences because six years of war had hardened him to sights of appalling horror. 68 years ago today the Allies launched their attack that killed 25,000 civilians in an inferno that was planned to be totally devastating - and was. Despite Mr Gregg's assertion that he is not a pacifist, this is the most powerful piece of anti-war writing that I have ever read.

A very disturbing but essential read, especially for people, like me. who like to read of the work of the combatants.

Most of Europe was anti-war. Hitler and about a third of Germans and Austrians were not.
