The loss of life and the amount of physical destruction in cities which occurred during World War II was greater than fire losses would be in over 100 years in the U.S. at our present rate of burning. Particularly in the cities, fire dwarfed all other casues of loss of life and physical damagae. We must be impressed by the enormous effectiveness of the role of fire as a weapon of war which was demonstrated long before the atomic bomb. We may find in the great fires of the war valuable lessons which can be used to better equip us to combat the futre fires of peacetime -and the fires of any future war."
