Description

“Fascinating….Bessel does an excellent job of evoking the blasted landscape of a conquered Germany.”

The New Yorker

 

“A sober yet powerful account.”—New York Times Book Review

 

Authoritative and dramatic, Germany 1945 by distinguished British historian Richard Bessel is groundbreaking history that brilliantly explores the devastation and remarkable rebirth of Germany at the end of World War II. Called “a masterly account by a first rate historian,” by Ian Kershaw (Hitler), Germany 1945 is sure to become the definitive work on the subject.
