An amazing series of interviews edited down to this interview by Kurt Vonnegut
I said that only one person on the entire planet benefited from the raid [on Dresden, Germany], which must have cost tens of millions of dollars. The raid didn't shorten the war by half a second, didn't weaken a German defense or attack anywhere, didn't free a single person from a death camp. Only one person benefited—not two or five or ten. Just one.
And who was that?
Me. I got three dollars for each person killed. Imagine that.
