Journey's End: Bomber Command's Battle from Arnhem to Dresden and Beyond

Kevin Wilson

Write Review

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Military history, Second World War

The final, climactic volume of Wilson's acclaimed bomber war trilogy.

In February 1945, British and American bombers rained down thousands of tons of incendiaries on the city of Dresden, creating one of the greatest firestorms in history. Their bombs killed an estimated 25 000 people and wiped one of the most beautiful cities in Europe from the map.

This book neither condemns the bombing of Dresden, nor excuses it, but simply puts it in its proper context as a devastating set of raids in a much larger campaign.

The bomber war had entered its final unforgiving months and no quarter was given on either side. Kevin Wilson has interviewed over a hundred people for this book, some of whom flew on the Dresden raids and many more who experienced other aspects of bombing, both in the air and on the ground.
