I'm trying to learn more about the history of the bombing of Dresden, and am looking for the most reliable (yet accessible) source.

Just finished listening to Slaughterhouse 5 (so it goes), in advance of a Slate Book Club live event here in Seattle, and it got me interested in learning more about the bombing of Dresden at the end of World War II. While there are a number of published books on this event, they seem to vary in terms of their reliability, at least based on reviews and articles that I've read.
Can anyone recommend a particularly good book to read on the topic - one that's both accurate and approachable for a non-academic, non-historian?
