Paul Addison and Jeremy A. Crang, eds. Firestorm: The Bombing of Dresden, 1945. London: Pimlico, 2006. Scholars of the calibre of Richard Overy and Tami Davis Biddle examine the Dresden raid from a variety of angles. Hew Strachan contributes a chapter on "Strategic bombing and the question of civilian casualties up to 1945". Why isn't he off writing the second volume of The First World War instead, that's what I'd like to know. I mean, just how long does it take to write another 1000-page-plus magisterial magnum opus anyway? :)
