9780141032399: Berlin: The Downfall, 1945

The Red Army had much to avenge when it finally reached the frontiers of the Third Reich in January 1945. Political instructors had rammed home the message of Wehrmacht and SS brutality. The result was the most terrifying example of fire and sword ever known, with over seven million civilians forced to flee westwards from the terror of the Red Army. In his bestselling narrative, Antony Beevor reconstructs the experiences of those millions caught up in the nightmare of the Third Reich's final collapse, telling a terrible story of pride, stupidity, fanaticism and savagery, but also one of astonishing endurance, self-sacrifice and survival against all odds.

Review:

By December 1944, many of the 3 million citizens of Berlin had stopped giving the Nazi salute, and jokes circulated that the most practical Christmas gift of the season was a coffin. And for good reason, military historian Antony Beevor writes in this richly detailed reconstruction of events in the final days of Adolf Hitler's Berlin. Following savage years of campaigns in Russia, the Nazi regime had not only failed to crush Bolshevism, it had brought the Soviet army to the very gates of the capital. That army, ill-fed and hungry for vengeance, unloosed its fury on Berlin just a month later in a long siege that would cost hundreds of thousands of lives on both sides. But as Beevor recounts, the siege was also marked by remarkable acts of courage and even compassion. Drawing on unexplored Soviet and German archives and dozens of eyewitness accounts, Beevor brings us a harrowing portrait of the battle and its terrible aftermath, which would color world history for years to follow. --Gregory McNamee
