The shameless slaughter of tens, maybe hundreds, of thousands of innocent men, woman, and children at the hands of the allied bombers at Dresden was arguably the single worst atrocity committed during WWII, by either side, yet this film fails to stir the emotions one would expect when viewing a movie that claims to realistically depict the horrors of those attacks. As is usual with WWII history telling in the 'entertainment' business, the movie manages to twist the narrative to one where the perpetrator was the victim, and the victim the aggressor. Disappointing.
