Those blackened stones you see everywhere, as well as on the Frauenkirche, do seem to scream their indignation and fury, bearing an eloquent but silent testimony to the smoke and fire of that terrible night. I am uneasy about Operation Thunderclap. It was an explicitly psychological campaign to crush the spirit of the ...

The Controversial WWII bombing
