The Battles for Berlin: The Death of Hitler's Third Reich

>Fourth and final part of this epic of Eastern Front military history. This focuses on the last part of John Erickson's second book 'The Road to Berlin'. Here the story starts with the counter attack after Kursk in July 1943 until the fall of Berlin in May 1945. From Kursk onwards the Germans fought a purely defensive war of survival and were never able to mount another sustained offensive. The end was inevitable and the story is very intersting. A truely great series based on two books that helped change how the war on the Eastern Front was viewed in the West
