Called “a masterly account by a first rate historian,” by Ian Kershaw (Hitler), Germany 1945 is sure to become the definitive work on the subject.<_o3a_p>

Editorial Reviews

“A masterly account by a first-rate historian of the scarcely credible levels of death and destruction in Germany during the final, apocalyptic phase of the Second World War, and the ways in which the experience of these terrible months helped to forge the first, tentative stages of the extraordinary recovery from Nazism that led to the building of a peaceful and prosperous society—truly, as Richard Bessel states, ‘life after death.’” (Ian Kershaw)
