Description: The firebombing of Dresden, Germany in February 1945 sets the city ablaze, and would become one of the most controversial attacks of the Second World War. But as we hear in these wartime reports from CBC Radio, at the time of the bombing Allied forces are simply glad to see another part of the German war machine crippled. In the first part of this report, which aired on Feb. 14, 1945, RCAF Squadron Leader Les Powell describes the logistics of the Dresden attack. In the second part, which aired two days later, Powell interviews Flight Sergeant Frank Bramley, a Lancaster gunner who participated in the Dresden bombings. He describes the aerial view of the fires raging along the Eastern Front as "the finest sight I've ever seen" - proof positive that victory is in sight at last.

Description: May 8, 1945, was a day to celebrate. It was VE-Day, the long-awaited moment when the Allied forces triumphed over Nazi Germany to claim victory in Europe. But the joy brought by news of peace was dampened by the memory of fallen comrades and the ongoing war in the Pacific. From the liberation of Holland through the German surrender, celebrations in Canada and the servicemen's return, CBC Archives follows Canadians as the war ends in Europe.
