By: Keith Lowe (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
In the last days of July 1943, British and American planes dropped 9,000 tons of bombs with the intention of erasing the German city from the map. The resultant firestorm burned for a month and left 40,000 civilians dead. "Inferno" is a searing account of terrifying destruction: of how and why the Allies dropped a hail of high-explosive and incendiary bombs; of blizzards of sparks, hurricane-force winds and 800-degree temperatures; of survivors cowering in basements or struggling along melting streets; of a city and its people near annihilated from above. "Inferno" is an epic story of human devastation and survival against impossible odds.
Keith Lowe is widely recognized as an authority on the Second World War. He is the author of two previous books, Savage Continent and Inferno: The Devastation of Hamburg, 1943, and has often spoken on TV and radio, both in Britain and the United States. He lives in north London with his wife and two children.
