By Any Means Necessary

Go here to read A. C. Grayling's review of Keith Lowe's Inferno: The Devastation of Hamburg, 1943 (London: Viking). In June this book will be published by Scribner as Inferno: The Fiery Destruction of Hamburg, 1943. Although he argues that Lowe fails sufficiently to address the moral issues involved, Grayling believes that he"has written a compelling book. In describing the second world war’s worst bombing raid he has produced the definitive account of a great tragedy." Readers may recall that Grayling is the author of Among the Dead Cities: The History and Moral Legacy of the WWII Bombing of Civilians in Germany and Japan (Walker, 2005).
