The 1300 US and British bombers that firebombed Dresden were given no specific targets; their orders were to just dump the 700,000 bombs onto this city of 650,000 plus uncounted refugees, which the bombers did over 14 hours. The temperature in the center of Dreden is reported to have reached 1600 Celsius. Now, I defy anyone to come up with an accurate death toll when at that heat bodies simply liquify. There were bonfires of bodies for days afterwards in Dresden. Add to this horror the machine gun attacks of US Mustang fighter planes that aimed at the fleeing refugees. The world wouldn't see such devastation until the USA started firebombing over 50 cities in Japan.
