Description

In this remarkable account of the end of the Second World War, David Stafford looks behind the headlines of history and uncovers the stories of those, soldier and civilian alike, who had lived through the war and now must endure the daily horrors and hardships of its aftermath. Endgame 1945 is an unforgettable panorama of the defeat of Fascism, of ordinary men and women and extraordinary valour, and of Europe in every way tested to its limits. It is the final chapter of war. 'Gripping and moving ...From a BBC reporter accompanying allied soldiers into the concentration camp at Buchenwald to a New Zealand intelligence officer working with Italian and Yugoslav partisans in Trieste, the men and women Stafford highlights pay eloquent tribute to the chaos and confusion that reigned as war metamorphosed into peace' Nick Rennison, SUNDAY TIMES
