Firestorm: Bombing of Dresden

La Morte (3)1945: GERMANY. Britain and the United States commit one of the most gruesome war crimes of the Second World War when they firebomb the German city of Dresden, crammed with hundreds of thousands of refugees. The few legitimate military targets in or near Dresden, including a vital railway bridge, are not targeted. The bombing creates a firestorm, literally a holocaust, which destroys thirteen square miles of the historical core of the city.

Buffalo kill in America. 1800s. military commanders were ordering their troops to kill buffalo — not for food, but to deny native americans their own source of food and push them into reservation life. Where millions of buffalo once roamed, only a few thousand animals remained.
