Dresden, 1945

Via Wikipedia (citations omitted): “In four raids between 13 and 15 February 1945, 722 heavy bombers of the British Royal Air Force (RAF) and 527 of the United States Army Air Force (USAAF) dropped more than 3,900 tons of high-explosive bombs and incendiary devices on the city. The bombing and the resulting firestorm destroyed more than 1,600 acres (6.5 km) of the city centre. An estimated 22,700 to 25,000 people were killed ….” Victor’s justice aside, why wasn’t the bombing of Dresden by the Allies a war crime?
