Summary Berlin, May 1945, the German capital only days after the bloodiest conflict in European history came to an end. During the last three weeks of the Second World War in Europe, nearly two million artillery shells were fired into the city. Thousands of homes were destroyed and over a quarter of a million people died, almost as many as many as the United States lost during the entire war. In Britain in 1999, one of the world's leading military historians embarks on the most ambitious project of his career. Antony Beevor aims to write the most authoritative history yet of the Battle of Berlin. The fall of the German capital to the Red Army was the end of an era of unprecedented carnage and destruction. Yet, the story of the Battle of Berlin still hasn't been told in full. There are shocking new documents in the international controversy over the alleged mass rape of German women by Soviet soldiers at the end of the war. And in the mystery of why Stalin recklessly sacrifice tens of thousands of his soldiers in the Berlin operation, Beevor believes he has found an answer.
