Stalingrad is an extraordinary achievement which transcends its genre (Vitali Vitaliev Daily Telegraph on Stalingrad)
Stalingrad was, I thought, as good as it gets. But Berlin is even better. If you ever needed reminding why war is something we should move heaven and earth to avoid, this will do it (Jeremy Paxman Guardian on Berlin)
Beevor can be credited with single-handedly transforming the reputation of military history (David Edgar Guardian)
His singular ability to make huge historical events accessible to a general audience recalls the golden age of British narrative history, whose giants include Gibbon, Macaulay and Carlyle (Boyd Tonkin Independent)
The style contributes to the account itself, a masterful mixture of narrative finesse and scrupulousness towards the facts. In both categories we are witnessing an author at the height of his art (Thomas Kielinger Die Welt)
Seule passion dans sa démarche: celle de la vérité (Eric Roussel in Le Figaro)
A British historian of great distinction and range, who . . . demonstrates his mastery of his sources (Gordon Craig, Review of Books New York)
Antony Beevor is a contemporary Tolstoy who, with his books on history, is creating a literary masterpiece which will stand the test of time. . . [he] proves that history today is one of literature's most vital branches (Dagens Nyheter)
Superb. Beevor combines a soldier's understanding of war's realities with the narrative technique of a novelist. A tour de force (Orlando Figes Sunday Telegraph on Stalingrad)
As readable and as captivating as a Tolstoyan epic drama of the scope of War and Peace. Revealing, profound and thoroughly unputdownable, Stalingrad is an extraordinary achievement which transcends its genre (Vitali Vitaliev Daily Telegraph on Stalingrad)
The Normandy Landings that took place on D-Day involved by far the largest invasion fleet ever known. The scale of the undertaking was simply awesome. What followed them was some of the most cunning and ferocious fighting of the war, at times as savage as anything seen on the Eastern Front. As casualties mounted, so too did the tensions between the principal commanders on both sides. Meanwhile, French civilians caught in the middle of these battlefields or under Allied bombing endured terrible suffering. Even the joys of Liberation had their darker side. The war in northern France marked not just a generation but the whole of the post-war world, profoundly influencing relations between America and Europe.
Making use of overlooked and new material from over thirty archives in half a dozen countries, D-Day is the most vivid and well-researched account yet of the battle of Normandy. As with Stalingrad and Berlin, Antony Beevor's gripping narrative conveys the true experience of war.
