 Amazon.ca: Dresden: Tuesday, February 13, 1945: Books: Frederick Taylor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The Book is titled "Dresden: Tuesday, February 13, 1945", so one would think that the majority of the book would be about that day or the direct aftermath...well, I am almost 1/2 way through the book and it is now in 1943.
I suggest that if you're writing a scholarly study about the pulverization of 13 square miles of a city dating from the Middle Ages as well as the loss of tens of thousands of lives, it would have been worth developing this issue far more fully.
A few final ideas: this book does NOT set out to invalidate all previous scholarship on the bombing or to definitively "solve" once and for all this episode in the history of warfare, but rather to recreate the event in the reader's eyes and to clarify what Taylor believes are some long-standing exaggerations and inaccuracies.
