READ ì The Road to Berlin Cassell Military Paperbacks The follow up to the acclaimed The Road to Stalingrad tells the compelling story of the Red Army's epic struggle to drive the Germans out of Russia and back to Berlin Using Soviet German and Eastern European primary. I won t lie getting through Road To Berlin was nothing less than a chore The book is first and foremost a cold chronological overview of military operations on Eastern Front starting with the reduction of Stalingrad kessel at the end of 1942 and ending with final Soviet offensive aimed at remains of Army Group Center in western Czechoslovakia at the beginning of May 1945 thus ending the World War II in Europe Seemingly endless litany of Fronts Army Groups Armies divisions names of towns rivers and marshals and generals made for a reading dry as bone hard to absorb and uite frankly at

German counterparts on pretty much regular basis simultaneously and on several fronts all the way from Stalingrad to BerlinThere is third reason why I find this book invaluable source in my never ending study of World War 2 Hidden in the middle of seemingly endless dry as bone list of Soviet offensives is a number of discourses dedicated to political interactions between the Big Three as well as several events that took place during the war which are almost uncovered in the Western literature dedicated to this conflict In those parts of the book the author s writing style transforms and
