Tony Le Tissier's account of the battle for Berlin dispels the myths created by Soviet propaganda and describes in graphic detail the Red Army's final offensive against Nazi Germany. Berlin - seen by Soviet soldiers as the victor's prize - had been promised to Marshal Zhukov, but it fell to Marshal Koniev to launch one of his powerful tank armies against the desperate and inadequate German defence of the city. First published in 1999.
