Berlin by Antony Beevor,
This review is from: Berlin: The Downfall 1945 (Paperback)I was a resident of Berlin from the time I was born in 1941 until 1948 when I came to England.
My husband John has been writing about the life of my father who was a top entertainer and a fireman in Berlin during the 2nd world war.
The book "Berlin the downfall" was a tremendoues referance in supplying information regarding the background to those troubled times.
We have read many books on the subject but this one has to be the best. Antony made great use of information recently released from the Soviat Union and thus gave a clear veiw from another prospective, as is often said there are 2 sides to every story.
Students studying the subject would not find a more detialed account and equelly important it was easy to read.
We are in the process of reading "Stalingrad" by the same author, also purchased from Amazon.
