    Story
    (233)

    The Battle for Berlin was the culminating struggle of World War II in the European theater. The last offensive against Hitler’s Third Reich, it devastated one of Europe’s historic capitals and marked the final defeat of Nazi Germany. It was also one of the war’s bloodiest and most pivotal battles, whose outcome would shape international politics for decades to come.

    From one of our finest military historians comes a monumental work that shows us at once the truly global reach of World War II and its deeply personal consequences. Remarkably informed and wide-ranging, Inferno is both elegantly written and cogently argued. Above all, it is a new and essential understanding of one of the greatest and bloodiest events of the 20th century.

    What would have made Inferno better?

    Excellent book, but a poor choice for narrator. He has a weird accent, and his phrasing makes it sound like he is reading a cookbook. Too bad, because Max Hastings is a master at telling the great stories of history, and the best WW2 writer I've found.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ralph Cosham’s performances?

    No - annoying


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointed in the delivery, but fascinated with the story - I'll try buying the book.
