David F. Crew is Distinguished Teaching Professor of History at the University of Texas at Austin.
Smart, thought-provoking, engaging, and important. The topic of the bombing war has moved to center stage in discussions of how best to remember and commemorate the end of the Second World War in Germany, but we know very little about the ways in which “bodies and ruins” - the causalities of the bombing war - were remembered in the fifty years or so after 1945. David Crew fills in that story." —Robert Moeller, University of California-Irvine
