73 years ago today, the British RAF began a bombing attack on the German city of Dresden, an attack specifically ordered by Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
In stark contrast to the propagandistic garbage spewed by so-called historians who, in reality are professional liars who never dare to veer from the orthodox, approved narrative, I am going to call the bombing of Dresden what it was – a truly disgusting and murderous war crime, an unjustifiable mass murder that was ordered by a bloodthirsty alcoholic and served no purpose in the war effort.
Germany was already a defeated nation by February 1945, it was just a matter of time before the allied armies overran all of the territory of the Reich and forced the Germans into unconditional surrender.
Murderous bombing raids like Dresden were a prime factor in ensuring the German troops fought to the bitter end, which cost untold numbers of lives of Allied servicemen and prolonged the war.
Dresden was a cultural centre of great historical importance and one of the most architecturally beautiful cities in the entire world; however, it was not in any way, shape or form, a valid target for annihilation as it did not contain any significant industries or facilities, nothing that was important to the German war effort.
Dresden did contain the Carl Zeiss factory that made the famous Contax cameras and some optics used by the German armed forces, but this was hardly a major target, the Zeiss factory that made a significant input to the war effort was located in the city of Jena.
The bombing attack was ordered by Churchill himself, and he was fully aware of the fact Dresden was not a target of significance to the war effort, so the motives for the attack are not altogether clear, most likely, Churchill wanted to demonstrate to the Russians the sheer destructive power of the British and American strategic bomber forces.
Certainly Churchill knew that it was a city packed with refugees escaping the advancing Red Army and certainly he was aware of the fact that unleashing a holocaust on the city was a great crime – we have proof of this as a month later, Churchill attempted to shift the blame onto the RAF, an action that was bitterly opposed an the memo Churchill sent was angrily returned; the RAF steadfastly refused to have the blame shifted onto them.
The official figure of 25,000 deaths is nonsense, the real figure is many times greater; no-one will ever know for sure, but it is highly likely that several hundred thousand innocent Germans, mostly civilians and many of them homeless refugees were consumed by the firestorm. Furthermore, the death toll was deliberate – the RAF and USAF tactics were specifically designed to maximise the number of casualties.
The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the fire bombing of Tokyo rival Dresden for murderous destruction, but those cities were legitimate targets that contained vital war industries and military facilities; Dresden stands alone as a great war crime as it was unjustifiable as part of the war effort. Quite simply, it was deliberate wholesale slaughter of innocent civilians.
There is one historian who has honestly written about the destruction of Dresden and that is David Irving, his work on the subject earned him worldwide acclaim and brought into the Anglosphere a subject that had been almost completely unknown – even senior RAF commanders were largely unaware of the true nature of the death and destruction.
I encourage everyone to educate themselves about the bombing of Dresden, it will cause you to reassess what you think you know about World War 2 and who were the ‘good
guys’. The stark truth is that the Allies were far from the ‘good guys’ that we have been programmed to believe they were and that many war crimes and incidents of mass murder and genocide were carried out against the people of continental Europe, Dresden is just the prime example.

Or you can buy it at Amazon or your local bookstore, why I encourage everyone to do, this is a crime that must be remembered.
