Bombing of Dresden

Fire Storm Over Dresden [1990]Redolent-thrush's recent entry A Continent is Not Discovered if it Was Already Inhabited indicting Christopher Columbus reminds me of the documentary Fire Storm Over Dresden about the Bombing of Dresden in World War II. Apparently Winston Churchill gleefully order the bombing. And had Germany won the war, he would certainly would have been tried for war crimes. All this, interestingly came to light from the British historian David Irving, whom recently has been under attack as a Holocaust denier.

Perhaps, it goes to show that in these two examples, history is written by the victors.
