Dresden – History’s Worst Massacre
By George T. Parker
Published by Willis A. Carto in The American Mercury of Spring 1969

Winston Churchill’s destruction of Dresden, mentioned in Harry Elmer Barnes’ article (Page
24) is described in this article in all its gruesome detail. During the 14-hour holocaust, three times as many people died as were killed by the atom bomb in Hiroshima.

TWENTY FOUR YEARS AGO, as Allied planes rained death and destruction over Germany,
