The fearful story of the conquest of Eastern Germany by the Red Army from January to May 1945. The author, who has made use of official documents, newspaper reports, memoirs, private letters and diaries, plus many personal interviews, has created an absorbing narrative on the large scale. The two-volume German edition, more than twice as long as the English abridgment, contains a bibliography of the sources used.
