American Experience: Bombing of Germany
- Rated NR
- Genre: Special Interest-War
- Release Date: 3/16/2010
FDR pleaded with nations at the start of WWII to refrain from bombing densely populated cities to minimize civilian casualties. This directive would be challenged when the U.S. mounted its own unprecedented attack by air on cities of Germany, killing nearly a half million civilians. Archival footage of the attacks and resulting devastation coupled with interviews of WWII pilots and historians serve as a blatant reminder to this seed of moral controversy. 2010/color/60 min/NR/fullscreen.
