This book embraces the fates of more than a hundred million people, from the tragic teenage fanatics who died in the ruins of Hitler's Reich to the British "Tommies" who simply yearned to finish a painful job and go home. Few books on the Second World War have so vividly brought together the story of the battlefields, east and west, with the decisions of the generals and the impact of great events upon ordinary soldiers and civilians.

Masterful history. Story telling at its best.
Absolutely stunning. Hastings takes the closing chapter of the war and shows it for all its complexity and horror. It’s easy to listen to and engaging even for a history buff like myself. Well done. I would recommend this work to anyone and is one of the best audio’s I have chosen in 6 years !! (I started with .com)

Another Hastings success
What can you say about a Max Hasting book, it is fantastic, the research that must have gone into this book must is beyond my imagination. It really is a worthwhile read. Highly commend it.
