Description
 
Asks the provocative question, How would the Allies have fared if judged by the standards of the Nuremberg trials? While the victor nations have never had to consider the morality of their policies during WW2, Grayling offers a reexamination of the Allied bombing campaigns against civilians in Germany and Japan, in light of principles enshrined in the postwar conventions on human rights. The bombings destroyed centuries of culture and killed some 800,000 noncombatants, injuring and traumatizing hundreds of thousands more in Hamburg, Dresden, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and scores of other cities. The bombing campaigns were morally indefensible; accepting responsibility is both a historical necessity and a moral imperative. Photos.
