The Devil's Tinderbox

The Devil's Tinderbox [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Devil's Tinderbox by Alexander McKee Book Summary:

Controversy still rages about the Allied decision to bomb the beautiful and historic city of Dresden on February 13th 1945. By then the war was virtually won and Dresden was peopled mainly by civilians and refugees, most of them women and children. The firestorm created by the bombing of the city killed over 35,000 people. The Devil's Tinderbox is the only one to present the personal descriptions of eye-witnesses, not only the survivors in the city but the air-crews, both British and American, who flew on the bombing mission and observed the appalling impact of their attacks. Alexander McKee carefully assesses the political and military decisions that led to the raids, drawn from official sources and archive material. Including contemporary photographs that bear witness to the devastating effect of an attack that reduced Dresden to rubble. Meticulously researched and skilfully told, The Devil's Tinderbox is gripping, shocking and deeply moving.

The Day the Devils Dropped In

The Devil's Tinderbox [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Day the Devils Dropped In by Neil Barber Book Summary:

This WWII history presents a vivid chronicle of the British Army’s 9th Parachute Battalion and their operations in Normandy based on survivor interviews. The first hours and days following the Allied invasion of Normandy were perhaps the most crucial moment of the Second World War. The Day The Devils Dropped In examines the pivotal role played by the 9th Battalion of the Parachute Regiment in the first week of the landings. These brave British soldiers were tasked with neutralizing the mighty Merville Battery, and capturing Le Plein and the Chateau St. Côme on the Breville Ridge. Failure by to achieve any of these objectives could have meant disaster for Operation Overlord—and catastrophe for the Allied war effort. In his quest to uncover what transpired in the early days of the landings, historian Neil Barber tracked down and interviewed surviving participants in the operation. In The Day the Devils Dropped In, he presents the full story, largely in the very words of those who lived through the experience. Enhanced by wartime photographs throughout, this revealing chronicle is a fine tribute to those whose contribution must never be forgotten.

Firestorm

The Devil's Tinderbox [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Firestorm by Paul Addison,Jeremy A. Crang Book Summary:

On the night of 13 and 14 February 1945 the RAF bombed the city of Dresden, causing devastating fires which obliterated the historic city centre and killed many thousands of people. Sixty years later these raids remain one of the most notorious, and also one of the most controversial, episodes in the history of the Second World War.FIRESTORM- THE BOMBING OF DRESDEN, 1945 assembles a cast of distinguished scholars, including Sebastian Cox, Nicola Lambourne, Soenke Neitzel, Richard Overy and Hew Strachan, to review the origins, conduct, and consequences of the raids. Each contributor writes from his or her own perspective, offering the reader a panoramic reassessment of the evidence and the issues, including the question of whether or not the bombing of the city constitutes a war crime. FIRESTORM cogently demonstrates the reasons why Dresden has come to symbolise the military and ethical questions involved in the waging of total war.

War Crimes and War Crime Trials

The Devil's Tinderbox [Pdf/ePub] eBook

War Crimes and War Crime Trials by John C. Watkins,John Paul Weber Book Summary:

This is both a casebook of selected war crime decisions by various national and international tribunals in the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries as well as a brief historical account of the geopolitical, diplomatic and military events surrounding them.

The editors have included fairly extensive selections from some of the major materials that have surrounded subsequent war crime litigation. Also included are an epilogue by Michael Ignatieff; an eleven-entry appendix; a glossary containing over 200 words; a reference section of over 1,400 citations from a wide variety of legal, historical and international relations literature; and a name and subject index.

Moral Philosophy and the Holocaust

The Devil's Tinderbox [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Moral Philosophy and the Holocaust by Department of Philosophy Eve Garrard Book Summary:

How far can we ever hope to understand the Holocaust? What can we reasonably say about right and wrong, moral responsibility, praise and blame, in a world where ordinary reasons seem to be excluded? In the century of Nazism, ethical writing in English had much more to say about the meaning of the word `good` than about the material reality of evil. This book seeks to redress the balance at the start of a new century. Despite intense interest in the Holocaust, there has been relatively little exploration of it by philosophers in the analytic tradition. Although ethical writers often refer to Nazism as a touchstone example of evil, and use it as a case by which moral theorising can be tested, they rarely analyse what evil amounts to, or address the substantive moral questions raised by the Holocaust itself. This book draws together new work by leading moral philosophers to present a wide range of perspectives on the Holocaust. Contributors focus on particular themes of central importance, including: moral responsibility for genocide; the moral uniqueness of the Holocaust; responding to extreme evil; the role of ideology; the moral psychology of perpetrators and victims of genocide; forgiveness and the Holocaust; and the impact of the `Final Solution` on subsequent culture. Topics are treated with the precision and rigour characteristic of analytic philosophy. Scholars, teachers and students with an interest in moral theory, applied ethics, genocide and Holocaust studies will find this book of particular value, as will all those seeking greater insight into ethical issues surrounding Nazism, race-hatred and intolerance.

The Holocaust and Strategic Bombing

The Devil's Tinderbox [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Holocaust and Strategic Bombing by Eric Markusen,David Kopf Book Summary:

Examining the Nazi Holocaust and the U.S.-British strategic bombing of cities during World War II, Markusen and Kopf uncover some striking parallels between the two programs of governmental violence. Although there were important differences in the two cases, the authors show that ultimately democracies and totalitarian governments alike will resort to genocidal killing if it is perceived to be essential to national security. The authors suggest that the continuing reliance on nuclear weapons reflects similar psychological and social factors to those that facilitated the Holocaust and strategic bombing during World War II.

The Devil's Tinderbox [Pdf/ePub] eBook

"Bomber" Harris and the Strategic Bombing Offensive, 1939-1945 by Charles Messenger Book Summary:

Bogen beskriver de Allieredes strategiske bombeangreb på Nazityskland. "Bomber" Harris, luftmarskal Sir Arthur Harris, leder af Bomberkommandoen, RAF Bomber Command spillede en vigtig rolle i udformningen af de allieredes strategiske planlægning under 2. Verdenskrig som resulterede i de massive bombninger af tyske byer. Det betød voldsomme og omfattende ødelæggelser - og massemord på den tyske civilbefolkning. Harris blev en del kritiseret for for mange "overflødige" bombemissioner med unødvendige tab af fly og flybesætninger.

Reaching for the Stars

The Devil's Tinderbox [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Reaching for the Stars by Mark Connelly Book Summary:

Bomber Command, in one of the largest and bloodiest campaigns of the war, with 55,000 aircrew lost and more officer fatalities than in World War I, remains a "lost and black sheep" among British wartime achievements. There has been little recognition: at the 50th anniversary of VE Day there was hardly a mention. The author provides a new and revisionary narative of the campaign and offers both a military history and an investigation of how the modern image--admiration and gratitude tinged with regret--of Bomber Command has developed.
