Editorial Reviews

After suffering heavy losses of aircraft during attacks on German factories, Winston Churchill orders cities to be targeted in order to smash German morale and reduce the number of workers available for the Nazi war machine. Hundreds of thousands of German civilians are killed as incendiary bombs turn the center of cities like Hamburg and Dresden into tornados of fire. Sixty years later, a new debate is underway over the reasons for this lethal bombing campaign. Were these relentless aerial attacks on German cities, which killed so many and destroyed so much, a necessary tactic in the war against Hitler? Or was it an act of revenge by the British and Americans? Using rare film footage (much of it in color) and stirring interviews with historians, former bomber pilots and survivors of the destruction, this extraordinary film brings to light the devastating allied air campaign against Nazi Germany.

Format: DVD
A new film by Michael Kloft, writer of "The Goebbels Experiment", Firestorm is a documentary about the lethal bombing campaigns that the Allies carried out against Nazi Germany. Winston Churchill specifically ordered cities to be targeted after attacks on German factories resulted in heavy aircraft losses; the objective was to crush German morale and reduce the number of workers that could power the Nazi efforts to make war. Civilian casualties were devastating. Firestorm includes rare, historic film footage, (much of it in color), along with interviews of historians, former bomber pilots, and survivors of the relentless assault. Bonus features include amateur film footage of Germany in ruins, and a filmmaker biography. An uncompromising look at the full might of the allied air campaign against Nazi Germany, and an oft-overlooked perspective of the Allies' brutality in war, which leaves the viewer to decide whether or not the extreme measures were necessary. 93 minutes, black-and-white and color.

Having lived what was reported on it is accurate and is one of the very few programs produced by the former WW-II Allies whhich questions the value of the bombing program and also brings to light the revenge factor, which most Germans have always felt was the main underlying reason for the attacks late in the war.

This film shows both sides and is over a hour long. It accurately shows the reasons why they firebombed germany. Both for military reasons and for reasons of wanting to fully destroy the enemies resolve. Then just to bomb anything left standing but then it was total war , and that's what you get. I thought it didn't take a stance that the allies were evil , but that they were part of the total war senerio and carried it out to the end. There's no doubt that they were on the side of right but today we would not target every single town like they did. But then we aren't fighting the third reich either!. This is NOt pro nazi like the 2 star reviewer said. It's very balanced and factual. ANd lets face it sometimes today we probably should blow up a whole village in afganistan if it's overrun with the taliban. Because war is hell and that's that. this is a fine feature and worth any war buffs time. SOme of the footage is rare and some is not. But the dvd is well done and not a slap at the allies but a more a factual stody of carpet bombing and the millions it killed.
