Also it’s not really about Berlin and not even about the Nazis but instead about the Soviets. It is not a waste of time to read this as I learned a lot of details about the Eastern Befvor but I think that it wasn’t time well spent.

Kristine rated it it was ok Mar 11, He does an admirable job of making an interesting read out of a rather excruciatingly boring topic. Sami No, it is not a novel. Return to Book Page. Marilyn rated it it was ok Jun 23, BerlinGermany. For me it just became a series of descriptions of numerous atrocities. Is this book a novel?? Page count correction and format.

It’s like reading a box score focused on a game’s final minutes when one team had absolutely no chance of winning. Trivia About The Fall of Berli Anthony Noriega rated it it was ok Dec 15, I’d place it on the better end of the non-fiction spectrum, Beevor lists his sources rather well.
Berlín : la caída, 1945
Beevor is a former officer with the 11th Hussars who served in England and Germany for 5 years before resigning his commission. Con riguorsas tecnicas documentales semejantes a las empleadas en Stalingrado pero con mayor aliento epico y mas densidad politica, Beevor describe tanto la complejidad de las grandes operaciones militares y la logica de las decisiones de sus mandos como los sentimientos de la gente comun atrapada en un torbellino de fuego y metralla.
There are interesting stories to be told, and he presents several, but in the end there’s simply not enough to support a book of this l Beevor’s skills as a writer simply aren’t able to overcome the subject matter. At the same time someone who attempts to deal with such a broad topic should be commended but maybe the author should have narrowed the scope si It is not a waste of time to read this as I learned a lot of details about the Eastern Front but I think that it wasn’t time well spent.
Antony Beevor reconstruye en este libro la ultima gran batalla europea de la segunda guerra mundial y la estremecedora agonia del Tercer Reich. I think the book is written very good and the research is very complete but it was too much to get a good overview of the fall of Berlin.

Superflat rated it it was ok Feb 15, I wouldn’t recommend it as there are much better things to read but if you are looking for a light read that covers a lot of ground go for it. Linda Daniels rated it it was ok Feb 09, Mas reciente aun que Contrastes, Mem La memoria colectiva que es la historia se nos aparece hoy mucho menos como el mero relato de lo ocurrido en el pasado que como un instrumento de analisis del presente. The clumsiness of ee Soviets, the megalomania of Stalin, the naivety of the Americans, the irrelevance of the British, all play out against the pathetic condition of the German people.

There are interesting stories to be told, and he presents several, but in the end there’s simply not enough to support a book of this length. Anonka Dameron rated it it was ok Sep 20, Meire Ella rated it it was ok Aug 15, A LOT of detail about Antiny troop movements.
Also the referencing is not to my liking at all. An aspect that troubled me in particular is that Beevor presents as fact, eyewitness accounts that I know are questioned by serious historians.
The Fall of Berlin There are conflicting statements and comparisons between Nazis and Soviets.
Also the main message that’s repeated, in rather simple terms, is that the Red Army was bad, seemingly ignoring the beevvor and reality of the ground war. I got lost in the book. Jay Fulton rated it it was ok Jul 06,
