Fascinating….Bessel does an excellent job of evoking the blasted landscape of a conquered Germany. <_o3a_p>

The New Yorker<_o3a_p>


“A sober yet powerful account.”
New York Times Book Review<_o3a_p>


Authoritative and dramatic, Germany 1945 by distinguished British historian Richard Bessel is groundbreaking history that brilliantly explores the devastation and remarkable rebirth of Germany at the end of World War II. 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)
