This is a masterpiece of historical writing, a book that compels its readers to reflect anew on the shaping forces of history. Beginning with the siege of Berlin, 1945 provides rich insight into the conflicts, motives, and counter-motives that marked the end of World War II and established the lasting patterns of deceit, uncertainty, and distrust that defined the Cold War.

“Superbly sensitive to the ground-level tragedy and the high-level politics of 1944–45, the readably fluent Dallas proves integral to understanding both what is known and unknown about the cataclysmic conclusion of the Second World War.”—Booklist (starred review)

"One comes away from reading Gregor Dallas’s eloquent book with a profound sense of the war’s futility, wastefulness, and unintended consequences."—James J. Sheehan, Commonweal

Gregor Dallas is the author of 1918: War and Peace, 1815: The Roads to Waterloo, and other major histories.

Editorial Reviews

"[This book] reads like a conversation with a sympathetic guide who has a sure eye for paradox, the unexpected detail and the almost forgotten . . . . Dallas convincingly demonstrates that where we are can be understood only by reference to where we were.""-Daily Telegraph"
