War-torn Europe is on the verge of disintegration-cities in ruin, more than 50 million dead. For those still alive, how do they survive the killing? And for the Allies, how do they bring an end to the slaughter? Answers remain elusive...Hitler has ordered the Germans to fight to the death-to destroy everything.
In February 1945, Dresden is the focus of Allied bombing to shatter German resistance. Poignantly told through the eyes of a remarkable cast of characters experiencing a night of hell on earth, Surviving Dresden is a compelling story of tragedy, courage, and ultimately human redemption.
"An evocative, inventive tale of war and moral judgment. Surviving Dresden vividly brings to life one of the most controversial episodes of the Second World War."
--Rick Atkinson, Pulitzer Prize winning author of the World War II Liberation Trilogy.
"An incredibly suspenseful, powerful story with a redemptive ending. Deserves a wide reading audience, even serious consideration for the big screen. Happy to offer my highest recommendation."
--Frank Price, Former Chairman and CEO, Columbia Pictures, and Former President, Universal Pictures
"If you love history and suspense, you'll love Surviving Dresden."
-- NATHANIEL PHILBRICK, author of In the Heart of the Sea
