Product description

Review

"A well-researched, fluently-written and utterly absorbing account of what life (and, so very often) death was like for ordinary Germans in the capital of Hitler's Reich during the Second World War. The Berliners' capacity for suffering, for sacrifice, for self-delusion, but also astonishingly for love - and even on occasion humour - is superbly evoked by Moorhouse's cornucopia of new information." (Andrew Roberts, author of The Storm of War)

"Berlin at War is a well-researched and beautifully composed account, vividly recreating those years of Nazi arrogance, oppression, and corruption, that ended in such terrible destruction and civilian suffering" (Antony Beevor)

"Roger Moorhouse has marshalled an impressive range of primary sources including newspaper reports, official documents, memoirs, diaries and interviews with the dwindling band of survivors to create a gripping panorama of Berlin at war...Moorhouse's meticulous and painstaking research matched by his narrative verve, wide ranging sympathy and eye for telling detail" (C J Schuler Independent)

"The greatest achievement of Moorhouse's book is that it manages to capture the complexities and contradictions of life in Hitler's Germany, illuminating the experiences of those who were victims, perpetrators or both. In doing so it provides something rare: a popular-history account that will satisfy both general readers and professional historians" (Irish Times)

"Moorhouse's evocative social history...brings...the sights, sounds, thoughts and feelings of the ordinary Germans who lived here" (Telegraph)
