Description

Here is the real story of the last year of World War II, a graphic and highly readable account of those final tragedies and triumphs before peace was restored to war-torn Europe.

In this powerful sequel to '44: In Combat on the Western Front from Normandy to the Ardennes, Charles Whiting has assembled the individual stories - the letters home and private diaries as well as the regimental histories and journalists' reports - in order to build up a truly authentic picture of what it was like to be there, to be crossing the Rhine or to be caught in the firestorm in Dresden, to be a victim in the Ardennes or a victor in Hamburg.

Once again Charles Whiting gives us a vivid and dramatic picture of the war in Europe, as seen and related by the ordinary soldiers on both sides - the men in the front line. He recreates their world giving us a picture of how they lived and died; what weapons they fought with; what food they ate; and how they learned to cope with the threat of death and keep alive the hope of victory.
