This is an excellently written history of the final days of Berlin in 1945. Some History books can be a little dry but this one makes you feel like you are there.

Format: Paperback
As a WWII history buff, I really enjoyed this book. This had the most detail on the last days of the Third Reich and how the end finally came about of any book I've read. The great selection of photos also helped keep the story in perspective.
Also provided great detail on the key events leading up to the fall. Including, why the Americans didn't meet up with the Russians and the politics surrounding the relationships between the Allied powers.
Great book for any history buff!

Format: Paperback
This book is a fine pictorial history of the last gasps of the Hitler regime as it faced the relentless onslaught of the massive Red Army at the close of World War II.

The book does a good job of explaining the importance of Berlin. It was not just the home of Nazism and its leaders. It was the second largest city in the world. (In 1939 its population was about 4 million. By the end of the war it was about 2.6 million.) As such, it was home to a significant portion of the German population and its defeat both symbolically and realistically rendered further resistance futile.

A shortcoming of the book is that its account is skewed toward the Soviet viewpoint both in terms of this battle and of the war overall. For example, the author repeatedly emphasizes minor, even trivial, Soviet accomplishments with exclamation points in an attempt to make them appear important. The author also appears to rely heavily on (notoriously unreliable) Soviet statistics regarding the battle, although he avoids being pinned down on this as he does not include any bibliography.

Nevertheless, the book is a good blow-by-blow account, and analysis, of the events leading up to the Fall of Berlin and the Fall of Berlin itself.

The pictures of places, events, and people surrounding the battle are well-chosen and reproduced. There are a few well-drawn maps.

This is a very readable book on the fall of Berlin. Well researched.
My neighbor, who was born and raised in Berlin and was there during the war, said this is the best account of how things actually were.
