´´In Slaughterhouse Five, -- Or the Children´s Crusade, Vonnegut finally delivers a complete treatise on the World War II bombing of Dresden. The main character, Billy Pilgrim, is a very young infantry scout who is captured in the Battle of the Bulge and quartered in a Dresden slaughterhouse where he and other prisoners are employed in the production of a vitamin supplement for pregnant women. During the February 13, 1945, firebombing by Allied aircraft, the prisoners take shelter in an underground meat locker. When they emerge, the city has been levelled and they are forced to dig corpses out of the rubble. The story of Billy Pilgrim is the story of Kurt Vonnegut who was captured and survived the firestorm in which 135,000 German civilians perished, more than the number of deaths in the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. Amerikaanse schrijver uit Indianapolis met veel succesvolle boeken op zijn palmares, zoals: Cat´s Cradle, Breakfast of Champions, The Sirens of Titan en Mother Night. Onderstaande tekst is vertaald vanuit de originele taal´In Slachthuis 5 schrijft Vonnegut eindelijk een complete verhandeling over de bombardementen van Dresden tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Het hoofdpersoon, Billy Pilgrim, is een jonge verkenner bij de infanterie die gevangen wordt genomen tijdens het Ardennenoffensief en wordt ingedeeld in een slachthuis in Dresden, waar hij en andere gevangenen te werk worden gesteld om vitaminesupplementen te produceren voor zwangere vrouwen. Wanneer de geallieerden op 13 februari 1945 de stad bombarderen, schuilen de gevangenen in een ondergrondse vleeskelder. Als ze naar buiten komen, is de stad met de grond gelijk gemaakt en worden ze gedwongen de lijken onder het puin vandaan te graven. Het verhaal van Billy Pilgrim is het verhaal van Kurt Vonnegut, die gevangen werd genomen en de vuurzee overleefde waarin 135.000 Duitse burgers omkwamen: meer dan het aantal doden van de bommen op Hiroshima en Nagasaki samen. Amerikaanse schrijverKurt Vonnegut´s absurdist classic Slaughterhouse-Five introduces us to Billy Pilgrim, a man who becomes unstuck in time after he is abducted by aliens from the planet Tralfamadore. In a plot-scrambling display of virtuosity, we follow Pilgrim simultaneously through all phases of his life, concentrating on his (and Vonnegut´s) shattering experience as an American prisoner of war who witnesses the firebombing of Dresden.

Don´t let the ease of reading fool you--Vonnegut´s isn´t a conventional, or simple, novel. He writes, "There are almost no characters in this story, and almost no dramatic confrontations, because most of the people in it are so sick, and so much the listless playthings of enormous forces. One of the main effects of war, after all, is that people are discouraged from being characters..." Slaughterhouse-Five (taken from the name of the building where the POWs were held) is not only Vonnegut´s most powerful book, it is as important as any written since 1945. Like Catch- 22, it fashions the author´s experiences in the Second World War into an eloquent and deeply funny plea against butchery in the service of authority. Slaughterhouse-Five boasts the same imagination, humanity, and gleeful appreciation of the absurd found in Vonnegut´s other works, but the book´s basis in rock-hard, tragic fact gives it a unique poignancy--and humor.
