Summary

In early 1945, the Red Army plunged into the Third Reich from the east, rolling up territory and crushing virtually everything in its path, with one exception: the city of Breslau, which Hitler had declared a fortress-city, to be defended to the death. This book examines in detail the notorious four-month siege of Breslau.

  • The first full-length English-language account of the bloody siege
  • Chronicles the bitter struggle as the Red Army encircled Breslau and eventually pillaged the city, taking savage retribution on the survivors
  • Details the brutal methods used by the city's Nazi leaders to keep German troops fighting and maintain order
  • Author Biography
