An excellent in-depth look at the fall of Berlin, encompassing both the Allies and Axis point of view, but also the citizens who endured countless hardships. Beever doesn't hold back or sugarcoat the atrocities inflicted on the citizens by the Red Army, and his in-depth look at the final days from inside Hitler's Bunker is top-notch.

An excellent survey of the last six months of WW II on the eastern front, but also addresses the overall situation of the conclusion of the war.

It has 16 maps at the beginning, not that it helped that much given my relative lack of ability to follow the battle action on a map. There's enough in the book both before and after the actual battle for Berlin to keep it interesting.
