Was the bombing of Dresden a war crime?

Feb 07, 04:17 PM
In February 1945, the Allies, led by Sir Arthur Harris and Bomber Command, destroyed the historic city of Dresden, killing 25,000, most of them civilians. For the 75th anniversary, Sinclair McKay, author of the newly released Dresden: The Fire and The Darkness, talks to A.N. Wilson on whether it should be regarded as a war crime. The full conversation is here - and you can read an edited version in the magazine this week.

Presented by William Moore.
