Pictures of Dresden Before and After the WWII Bombing

Ian Smith

You don’t need to be a history hunt to know about the most obscure and surprise bombing of the WWII in  the capital of the German state of Saxony-Dresden. The firebombing of Dresden was an American-British attack, and it happened during the last months of the war.

When, on the 13th and 15th February 1945, 722 heavy bombers burned the city to the ground.  The bombing  killed more than 25,000. Below you can see the before & after pictures.
