This review is from: Berlin: The Downfall, 1945 (Hardcover)
As soon as you start to read Berlin it becomes clear that Beevor has researched the subject material in immaculate depth. This book doesn't read like a normal book on the war in so far as it feels more like you are reading a fictional work. This feeling is mainly created by Beevor's use of tales from individual perspectives rather than reeling off a list of facts and statistics as so many other books do.
A superb read, even for those with no interest in the period under scrutiny, Some parts will truely shock you.
