"A nonfiction thriller about the race between the Allies and Soviets to conquer the heart of Nazi Germany"-- Provided by publisher.
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2022 October #2
The Second World War had been raging for five years when a cross-channel invasion of France by U.S. and British factions of the Allied forces changed everything. The leadership of U.S. General Eisenhower and British General Montgomery, along with the persistence and bravery of the men landing by air and sea, made Operation Overlord a triumph. By June 1944, the war's momentum had shifted, and Nazi forces, which had once trampled over much of Europe, had their backs to the wall as they faced possible mutiny in their upper ranks. The Soviets were battered but had beaten back the Nazi onslaught and begun to push west, while the British and Americans closed in from the east. Berlin was their common goal, but the path there would be bloody. Following Taking Paris (2021), Dugard's latest engaging history book features a fascinating narrative of intrigue in the waning days of WWII. From the perspectives of both the Allied and Axis powers, Dugard shows how victory often appeared as proximate as agonizing defeat. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
