Review:

As near as possible to experiencing what it was like to be there. . . It is almost impossible for a reader not to get caught up in the excitement (Giles Foden Guardian)

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)

From the Back Cover:

'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
'As readable and as captivating as a Tolstoyan epic drama of the scope of War and Peace. Revealing, profound and thoroughly unputdownable, Stalingrad is an extraordinary achievement which transcends its genre' Vitali Vitaliev, Daily Telegraph

Praise for Berlin - The Downfall:
'Stalingrad was, I thought, as good as it gets. But Berlin is even better. If you ever needed reminding why war is something we should move heaven and earth to avoid, this will do it' Jeremy Paxman, Guardian

'Beevor tells the savage, gripping story of the fall of the city with brilliance and a humane attention to the impact of an epic battle on fragile, individual lives' Helen Dunmore, The Times
