Allied Bombing of German Cities – Intelligent Squared debate on October 25th

Bomber Command

Intelligence Squared is launching a new series of history debates covering controversial events of the 20th century.   This will be kicked off in October with “The Allied bombing of German cities in World War II was unjustifiable”, with historians Antony Beevor, Patrick Bishop, A.C. Grayling and Richard Overy.

From I2: “Was it immoral to target German cities causing the death of hundreds of thousands of civilians? Or did the offensive serve a strategic purpose, destroying the German air force and paving the way for the successful Allied invasion of the continent?”
