[responding to criticism over the destruction of Dresden, Germany
Sir Arthur 'Bomber' Harris
We've been accused of murder. What would we have been accused of had we let Hitler and *his* bloody gang win the bloody war?

All I can say is that all the German towns *put together* aren't worth the bones of a British grenadier!
