What weapon was used to bomb WW2 Dresden?

It appears we are being lied to again, and the proof of the lies is in the trees.

The bombing and the resulting firestorm destroyed over 1,600 acres of the city centre.

The bombing of Dresden was a British/American aerial bombing attack on the city of Dresden, the capital of the German state of Saxony, during World War II in the European Theatre. In four raids between 13 and 15 February 1945, 722 heavy bombers of the British Royal Air Force and 527 of the United States Army Air Forces dropped more than 3,900 tons of high-explosive bombs and incendiary devices on the city.

The bombing and the resulting firestorm destroyed over 1,600 acres of the city centre. An estimated 22,700 to 25,000 people were killed, although larger casualty figures have been claimed. Three more USAAF air raids followed, two occurring on 2 March aimed at the city's railway marshalling yard and one smaller raid on 17 April aimed at industrial areas.


A few "fire" quotes from Wiki
  • The high explosives were intended to rupture water mains and blow off roofs, doors, and windows to create an air flow to feed the fires caused by the incendiaries that followed.
  • By now, the thousands of fires from the burning city could be seen more than 60 miles (97 km) away on the ground, and 500 miles (800 km) away in the air, with smoke rising to 15,000 feet (4,600 m).
  • ...many were calling and looking for their children and families, and fire everywhere, everywhere fire, and all the time the hot wind of the firestorm threw people back into the burning houses they were trying to escape from.
  • With the city on fire everywhere, those fleeing from one burning cellar simply...
  • ...inner eastern suburbs had been engulfed in a single fire that had destroyed almost 12,000 dwellings.

Where is the FIRE?
Apparently, one of the common denominators connecting many weird urban/forest fires, and bombings with the main theme of this blog is the lack of sufficient temperature. Time and time again, fierce powerful firestorms destroying hole cities, fail to set as much as a tree on fire.


Apart from some crazy "green movement" type group, running around and planting those trees amidst the wreckage of the destroyed, war time city, I straggle for a reasonable explanation.

Interesting that similar issues exist in multiple "bombed" by high-explosive bombs and incendiary devices WW2 cities.

Resonance Sonic Weapons?
These appear to target living entities for the most part. Wonder if resonance weapons could isolate targets based on their natural frequency.
The frequency or frequencies at which an object tends to vibrate with when hit, struck, plucked, strummed or somehow disturbed is known as the natural frequency of the object. ... All objects have a natural frequency or set of frequencies at which they vibrate.
Bizarre
Did Martin Luther - German professor of theology, composer, priest, monk, and a seminal figure in the Protestant Reformation - piss somebody off? Why topple the statue after the bombing was over?

KD: What fire of the described magnitude does nor destroy trees and does not char buildings? Four raids by 1249 airplanes (like 4,996 at once) with 3,900 tons of explosives dropped on Dresden.

Where is a single bomb crater? An interesting debate on the WW2 crater issue
can be seen here.
