I think he was as was Carl Spatz, commander of the 8th Airforce in Europe. Harris, wanted to bomb German civilian targets and was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent lives including my grandmother on my mother's side. He took great relish in destroying as many German cities as possible including the attack on Dresden in feb 1945. Attacking military targets is part of war-not intentionally bombing residential and commercial targets. Spatz, sided with Harris and was equallly criminal. Most people don't realize that after the British and Americans bombed Dresden, fleeing refugees, mostly women and children, were continuously strafed by American fighters! I was born and raised in Berlin, and now live here in the United States but I still mourn as do so many of my native countrymen, the senseless bombing of most of our beautiful cities. Despite that, I despise as do the vast majority of Germans, the Third Reich and Adolf Hitler in particular! Harris was an unrepentent butcher, but after the war, he fell in total disrepute from the British people-they realized what he was and was hated for it!!!
