FEB 13, 1945: Allies firebomb city of Dresden, Germany killing as many as 135,000 people
An event every year that begins at 12:00am on of February, repeating indefinitely
Allied firebombing raids begin over the German city of Dresden, reducing the historic city to rubble and flames, and killing as many as 135,000 people. Considered the single most destructive bombing of the war—including Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Little, if anything, was accomplished strategically, since the Germans were already on the verge of surrender.
