Description
To end the story of Hitler's war at VE Day is to leave the tale half told, says World War II historian David Stafford. Here he finishes the saga through the personal stories of nine men and women—soldiers, POWs, and war correspondents—who witnessed firsthand the Allied struggle to finish the terrible game at last. They trace the web of events that led to the war's resolution, including the deaths of Hitler and Mussolini, the liberation of Buchenwald and Dachau, and the Allies' race with the Red Army to establish a victors' foothold in Europe.

"A narrative of almost Tolstoyan proportions.... [The author is] to be congratulated on his even-handed treatment of a subject ... which only a writer of the first caliber, strongest nerve, and monumental intellectual stamina could tackle."—Spectator

"In relating the experiences of 'ordinary' people on both sides, brilliantly interleaved with the fate of the monsters who had precipitated this cataclysm, Stafford reveals a curious ambivalence.... The purpose of this book is to put a human face on the bewildering scale of death and devastation. David Stafford does it most compellingly."—Times (London)
