Synopsis

Documentary using rare archive footage to examine the controversial decision to bomb the German city of Dresden by the RAF in the closing months of the Second World War. With tens of thousands of people killed in the raids, the question of whether the attack was necessary given the state of German defences at the time has raged ever since.
