New Year's Day 1945 was not a day for rest or rejoicing on the embattled continent .

New Year's Day 1945 was not a day for rest or rejoicing on the embattled continent of Europe. Hard winter gripped the land, from the Channel coast to the distant Urals. Only the thought of victory warmed the frozen soldiers huddled in tanks and foxholes as the New Year dawned and they faced the prospect of battling onwards toward Berlin. This is the story of the last five months of Hitler's Thousand Year Reich, from New Year's Day to VE Day, May 8, 1945. With his unrivalled gift for popular history, Robin Neillands, in his follow-up to the enormously successful D-Day 1944, recreates in engaging narrative fashion the most dramatic and bloody months of the war.

With his unrivalled gift for popular history Robin Neillands, in his follow-up to the enormously successful D-Day 1944, recreates in engaging narrative fashion the most dramatic and bloody months of the war.

It is a story told not in the words of historians or scholars, but in the words of the people who lived through it, who fought and endured: soldier and civilian, American infantryman and British paratrooper, Canadian gunner and Australian pilot, New Zealand POW and German civilian. With his unrivalled gift for popular history Robin Neillands, in his follow-up to the enormously successful D-Day 1944, recreates in engaging narrative fashion the most dramatic and bloody months of the war.

O oo 255597 2. the conquest of the reich: d-day to ve-day - a soldiers' history. Weidenfeld and Nicholson pound;2O. A similar book by Robin Neillands opens with a problem: the title offers a history from D-Day to VE-Day but the first pages tell us it is actually going to cover five months in detail, January 1 1945 to VE-Day. A clear case for the Trade Descriptions Act. Still, it has an interesting contribution, as it offers a wider time-frame than Gilbert's book, but a narrower point of reference: Neillands is concerned only with the fighting men on the continent of Europe.

For those with an interest in technical matters this book goes into a great deal. I have been a keen fan of Robin Neillands since reading his books on the Hundred Years War and the War of the Roses. Hard winter gripped the land. This book was a break from his usual manner of writing, similar in style to Gerald Astor and just as good. From tank drivers, infantryman, pilots and gunners in the fighters & bombers and from every country involved - US, UK, USSR, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, etc.
