A searing account of the last days of the Nazi regime and the downfall of a nation. It is an original and gripping account, explaining how Germany's people reacted to imminent defeat, as well as its leaders. 'Brilliant... nuanced and sophisticated... undoubtedly a masterpiece' "Mail On Sunday"
In almost every major war there comes a point where defeat looms for one side and its rulers cut a deal with the victors, if only in an attempt to save their own skins. This title offers an account of the final months of the Nazi war machine, from the failed attempt to assassinate Hitler in July 1944 to the German surrender in May 1945.
