No writer can surpass Beevor in making sense of a crowded battlefield and in balancing the explanation of tactical manoeuvres with poignant flashes of human detail (Christopher Silvester Daily Express)
'His singular ability to make huge historical events accessible to a general audience recalls the golden age of British narrative history, whose giants include Gibbon, Macaulay and Carlyle' Boyd Tonkin, Independent
'Beevor can be credited with single-handedly transforming the reputation of military history' David Edgar, Guardian
Praise for Stalingrad:
'Superb. Beevor combines a soldier's understanding of war's realities with the narrative technique of a novelist. A tour de force' Orlando Figes, Sunday Telegraph
