'A tale drenched in drama and blood, heroism and cowardice, loyalty and betrayal.'-Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post The Red Army had much to avenge when it finally reached the frontiers of the Third Reich in January 1945. Frenzied by their terrible experiences with Wehrmacht and SS brutality, they wreaked havoc-tanks crushing refugee columns, mass rape, pillage, and unimaginable destruction. Hundreds of thousands of women are children froze to death or were massacred; more than seven million fled westward from the fury of the Red Army. It was the most terrifying example of fire and sword ever known. Antony Beevor has reconstructed the experiences of those millions caught up in the nightmare of the Third Reich's final collapse. The Fall of Berlin is a terrible story of pride, stupidity, fanaticism, revenge, and savagery, yet it is also one of astonishing endurance, self-sacrifice, and survival against all odds.

Antony Beevor's books are so well written that the transference to audio flows easily and enjoyably. He is one of my favorite authors when it comes to audio books. In audio, obviously, there are no illustrations or maps, yet Mr. Beevor paints the pictures of the situations that has the listener easily able to perceive the people and events being described. Sean Barrett has such a conversationalist style, that you'd think he's reciting the whole book from memory.

Antony Beevor has written a compelling and informative book on a dark time in world history about the loss, and atrocities that happen during war but as well as the human connections during struggle. Highly recommend to any history buff or reader for that matter.
