Berlin: The Downfall: 1945 by Antony Beevor

Berlin: The Downfall: 1945 by Antony Beevor, Peter Noble (Narrator)
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 500mb
Overview: 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.

Churchill 1940-1945: Under Friendly Fire by Walter Reid

Churchill 1940-1945: Under Friendly Fire by Walter Reid
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 753 KB
Overview: In April 1945 Churchill said to Sir Alan Brooke, Chief of the Imperial General Staff, ‘There is only one thing worse than fighting with allies, and that is fighting without them ‘ When he became Prime Minister on 10 May 1940 Churchill was without allies. Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain saved Britain from immediate defeat, but it was evident that Britain alone could never win the war.

Churchill looked to America. He said that until Pearl Harbor ‘no lover ever studied every whim of his mistress as I did those of President Roosevelt’. But would Roosevelt have entered the war if Pearl Harbor had not taken place? Until then his actions were ambivalent, and even afterwards America’s policy was largely shaped by self-interest and her idea of what a postwar world should be like. Churchill’s account of relations with his allies and associates was sanitized for the historical record and has been accepted uncritically. In reality he had to battle with the generals and the CIGS, Tory backbenchers and the War Cabinet, de Gaulle and the Free French and above all the Americans. Even his wife, Clementine, could on occasions be remarkably unsupportive.
