Armageddon: The Battle for Germany 1944-45 (Paperback)Max Hastings (author)
'As a military historian Max Hastings has few equals.' - Times Literary Supplement
One of the greatest military feats during the Second World War was the transformation of the German force's activities in the weeks following the battles in Holland and on the German border, where the Allies had finally inflicted the greatest catastrophes of modern war on them.
Somehow the Germans found the strength to halt the Allied advance in its tracks and to prolong the war to 1945. Armageddon, by military historian Sir Max Hastings, is the epic story of those last eight months of the war in northern Europe.
