Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Ardennes 1944 by Antony Beever, read by Sean Barrett.
On 16 December 1944, Hitler launched his last gamble in the snow-covered forests and gorges of the Ardennes on the Belgian/German border.
Although Hitler's generals were doubtful of success, younger officers and NCOs were desperate to believe that their homes and families could be saved from the vengeful Red Army approaching from the east. The Ardennes offensive, with more than a million men involved, became the greatest battle of the war in Western Europe.
In January 1945, when the Red Army launched its onslaught towards Berlin, the once-feared German war machine was revealed to be broken beyond repair. The Ardennes was the battle which finally broke the Wehrmacht.
In complete and unabridged historical audiobook, Ardennes 1944: Hitler's Last Gamble, written by military historian Antony Beevor and narrated by British voice actor Sean Barrett, informs the listener on one of the largest battles of the Second World War, The Ardennes. It has been extremely well-researched by Beevor. Hear about the battle between Hitler’s Wehrmacht Army and the Russian Red Army that led to the divide of Berlin. This book is both hugely informative and deeply moving as over a million men fought for the protection of their families on both sides of a war in its final defeat. Available now from Audible.
