I saw this book, The Fall of Berlin 1945, by Antony Beevor (who also wrote Stalingrad), at B & N today in Union Square. It looks pretty remarkable for its reportage of an insanely difficult, horrendously violent, and frightening time period in the history of Europe. I read parts of the book — as the Soviets were knocking on the Eastern Door, Hitler was sending children in on suicide missions to blow up Russian tanks. There appears to be much in here that is applicable, if slightly, to the world we are in or coming to.
I really want to purchase it but paying $20.97 for a hardback these days is a bit difficult what with keeping the household in clothes and food and video rentals.
