Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It seems to me that the fire-bombing of Dresden was a war crime almost comparable to Hiroshima and Nagasaki and much greater in scale than the bombing of - say Coventry.

I remember reading that the sum total of the British victims of WWII terror bombing was an order of magnitude below the sum total of German victims. On the other hand, I don't think that a sum was even made for civilian victims of Nazi aerial bombing along the Eastern Front. (BTW closer comparison would be the 9/10 March 1945 fire-bombing of Tokyo.)
