LETTER : Another Dresden

Sir: In his article on the bombing of Dresden ("Rubble-rousing stuff", 13 February), Steve Crawshaw writes: "Hiroshima apart, there has never been a raid like it." This is not so, for when the Americans bombed Tokyo on 9/10 March 1945, 16 square miles of the city were devastated with a loss of life estimated at between 80,000 and 200,000 people.

Faithfully,
