    Description

    Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Berlin by Antony Beevor, read by Peter Nobel.

    Berlin: The Downfall: 1945 is Antony Beevor's brilliant account of the fall of the Third Reich.

    The Red Army had much to avenge when it finally reached the frontiers of the Reich in January 1945. Political instructors rammed home the message of Wehrmacht and SS brutality. The result was the most terrifying example of fire and sword ever known, with tanks crushing refugee columns under their tracks, mass rape, pillage and destruction.

    Hundreds of thousands of women and children froze to death or were massacred because Nazi Party chiefs, refusing to face defeat, had forbidden the evacuation of civilians. Over seven million fled westwards from the terror of the Red Army.

    Antony Beevor reconstructs the experiences of those millions caught up in the nightmare of the Third Reich's final collapse, telling a terrible story of pride, stupidity, fanaticism, revenge and savagery, but also one of astonishing endurance, self-sacrifice and survival against all odds.

    If only there could have been more

    I was absolutely hooked from start to finish. The detail was, in my opinion, perfectly balanced. Tough listening in places but the reality of war shouldn't be avoided. Particularly poignant listening, as I now live in the former East Berlin and work within 5 minutes of the Führerbunker.

    Really really good.

    It's on par with the other books written by Antony Beevor, but this one seems to emphasise the civilian blight of germans once the Soviet Union crossed the reich's borders.

    Really full of small anecdotes that make the war feel more "human" instead of the book being just a chronological catalogue of who did what, when and why.

    Great story well told but..

    Loved eveyting about this except for the normally excellent Peter Noble's pronounciation of Gatow, Seelow. Marlow may be correct, but he could at least have asked someone who who was not Russian. Seelower Höhen are so central to the story, the repetition gets on your t1ts.

    Disgusting

    Masterpiece of historical stupidity. Lies over lies. "Using newly discovered documents". 👎👎
    Wasted time and money.

    A VERY Realistic back in time!

    Antony Beevor delivers here a detailed and facts driven recounter of what happened back in 1945 in Germany and what led to the end of WW2. It is pretty shocking and awakening to hear the detailed encounters especially how the liberation armies treated the German women. I have not read any other book that tells that side of the story in such detail. It is a shame that the accountability for such war crimes has not been publicised more. Whoever is interested in history should listen to this book!
    Peter Noble reads it so well and in such style that his words sit in ones ear for a long time....
