Berlin 1945: The Final Reckoning

Berlin 1945 shows how, in a city reduced to rubble, a bitter hand-to-hand struggle developed between fanatical Nazis, old men and young boys of the Hitler Youth, and the hard-bitten Russian troops.

The suffering of the soldiers and civilians in the city are revealed in full detail, with accounts from soldiers of both sides. Finally Berlin shows how German commanders disobeyed Hitler’s orders to stand to the last man, and the fate of the city was sealed. The final chapter discusses the full implications of the battle for the Germans and Russians, and describes the search for Hitler’s body.
