He was taken to Dresden and set to work along with other POWs — among other things in a syrup factory — and so happened to be there during the notorious Allied bombing raid which flattened this beautiful and historic city on the night of 13 February Vonnegut survived because he and other POWs had been billeted in a disused slaughterhouse.
Kurt Vonnegut was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, on November 22,the third child of two middle-class parents. His father was an architect and his mother came from a socially prominent family. He grew up during the Great Depression, and saw his life transformed as his family lost much of its money.
When the beautiful people were past, Valencia questioned her funny-looking husband about war. It was a simple-minded thing for a female Earthling to do, to associate sex and glamor with war. It's not just male war buffs who associate war with sex or who get some kind of pornographic excitement from violence.
Back in the 70s—when men were men, women were women, and breasts were real—Hollywood was obsessed with the idea of the outsider. Mobsters, bank robbers, whistleblowers—these were the heroes of 70s films. The final collapse of the studio system in the late 60s resulted in a decade of artistic though admittedly bourgeoisie auteur-driven films, before the 80s ushered in the age of the blockbuster, a precursor to today's franchise-driven cinema industry.

This is a novel somewhat in the telegraphic schizophrenic manner of tales of the planet Tralfamadore, where the flying saucers come from.
They say that sex sells, but can you name one computer entertainment product dealing with sex that's been a hit?

It follows his time as an American soldier and chaplain's assistant, to postwar and early years—occasionally traveling through time itself. The text centers around Pilgrim's survival of the Allies' firebombing of Dresden as a prisoner-of-war, an event which Vonnegut himself lived through as a captured serviceman.
