http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1078529/WW2-Dresden-bombing-killed-far-fewer-people-half-million-new-records-show.html# Gents if you read the above artical less then 25,000 people where killed in the Infamous Raid of Dresden according to German Historians. When the artical first appeared I mentioned to a German friend that he would soon be reading in his subscription copy of Der Spiegal a new view on the Dresden raid but from an authoritative German source. It has never been published my friend tells me. Is the artical Rubbish or ? john My friend turned 16 back in 45, a quite Gentleman of the old school. I have only once seen him lose his temper. A exceptionally vulgar Yank, bloody big lad, was mouthing off about 'How we Bombed the Iraqis to sh1t', my friend who was not involved in the conversation, turned to him and said Don't you ever talk about Bombing, You know nothing, I do I was in Berlin 43-45 Shut up.
