The bombing of Dresden in February 1945 has remained one of the more controversial aspects of World War Two. Dresden, the ancient and was attacked three times on Feb 13 and 14 — twice by the RAF (Royal Air Force) and once by the USAAF (United States Army Air Force) in an operation involving well over 1,000 bombers. Today is the 65th anniversary of that excessive attack, some say that it was revenge for Germans attack of London. However, Jacques Pauwels views the attack as a warning and to intimidate to the Soviets because it was suspected that they would arrive in Dresden in a few days.
