Pictorial slipcase. 10? x 6¾?. Antony Beevor’s critically acclaimed historical masterpiece is a gripping and frequently harrowing account of the Red Army’s capture of the German capital in World War II’s final stages. Berlin: The Downfall 1945 was the Non-Fiction winner of the Folio Readers’ Choice 2017. On finally reaching the Reich in January 1945, the Red Army had revenge on its mind. The ensuing story of rape, massacre and destruction is truly shocking. The reluctance of the Nazi chiefs to allow the evacuation of civilians resulted in the deaths, through extreme cold or execution, of hundreds of thousands of ordinary people, with more than seven million fleeing to the west to escape the marauding Russian forces. The confrontation between the hubris of an insane German Führer willing to sacrifice Berlin and all its inhabitants and the ruthless determination of Stalin to seize the city ahead of the Allies (no matter what the cost) represented the ultimate battle between two of the most powerful military leaders in all history. Its outcome would change the face of Europe for ever.
