Berlin Battlefield Guide: Third Reich and Cold War

By Tony Le Tissier

Published by Pen & Sword Military (2014)

On 16 April 1945 the Red Army unleashed a colossal offensive against Berlin with the aim of destroying Hitler's armies in the East and capturing the German capital before the Western Allies. Over two million soldiers confronted each other in the last act in the war against Nazi Germany. In the course of the next three weeks, relentless Soviet assaults crashed against a desperate, sometimes suicidal defence, and the historic city was turned into a vast battlefield. This epic contest, which has fascinated students of warfare ever since, can only be understood by visiting the sites of the battle on the ground, in the outskirts, in the suburbs, in the centre where the final dramatic combat took place. That is why Tony Le Tissier's detailed, graphic and highly illustrated guide is the perfect companion for anyone who wants to understand the battle and follow its course along the streets of the modern city.
