  • Stephen Spender


At Hagen I had seen a good deal of damage and again at Hamm where most of the centre of the town was destroyed. Also along the route from Oeynhausen there were bridges destroyed, detours, temporary wooden bridges touchingly named after some member of the Royal Engineers — M’Mahon’s Bridge, Piper’s Bridge, Smith’s Bridge, etc.: but it was in Cologne that I realized what total destruction meant.
