The Road To Berlin

Sold by Weidenfeld & Nicolson
Free sample

Beginning with the destruction of the German Sixth Army at Stalingrad, The Road to Berlin is the story of how the Red Army drove the Germans from its territory, and finally invaded the Reich.

Using an enormous range of primary sources - Soviet, German and Eastern European - John Erickson describes fighting and hardship on a scale almost unimaginable in the West. He provides a detailed narrative of all the battles on all the fronts, and also of the Soviet system of war which achieved, under maximum stress, near-impossible feats in the field and in the factories. The book also tells of the diplomatic moves and counter-moves, including the all-important conferences at Tehran and Yalta.

Comprehensive, compelling and immensely readable, it is an indispensable book for any student of the Second World War.
