Synopsis

Documentary using rare archive footage to examine the series of bombing raids undertaken by the RAF in the summer of 1943 against the German port of Hamburg. As a result of the bombing, the so-called 'Hamburg Firestorm' reduced the city to ashes, prompting Hitler's armaments minister Albert Speer to privately declare that one more raid of that nature would have knocked Germany out of the war.
