The raids were carried out under the codename Operation Gomorrah and the initial attack became infamous for creating the phenomenon known as a firestorm, which caused great destruction to the city and its inhabitants.
The book attempts to give a non-partisan account and goes into well researched detail about the raid, which includes interviews with participants from both sides of the battle.
