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. 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.

Brigitt rated it it was ok Dec 19, Kristine rated acida it was ok Mar 11, He does an admirable job of making an interesting read out belrin a rather excruciatingly boring topic.
Caid Noriega rated it it was ok Dec 15, Anonka Dameron rated it it was ok Sep 20, Meire Ella rated it it was ok Aug 15, Vaden rated it it was ok Oct 02, Books by Antony Beevor.
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. Far too much details for me. Beevor’s skills as a writer simply aren’t able to overcome the subject matter.
I’d place it on the better end of the non-fiction spectrum, Beevor bfrlin his sources rather well. At the cauda time someone who attempts to deal with such a broad topic should be commended but maybe the author should have narrowed the scope significantly.
Dejair rated it it was ok Apr 26, 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.
Trivia About The Fall of Berli Marilyn rated it it was ok Jun 23, Also the main message that’s repeated, in rather simple terms, is that the Red Army was bad, seemingly ignoring the battles and reality of the ground war.
BerlinGermany. Linda Daniels rated it it was ok Feb 09, Al termino de un siglo de expectativas fallidas, y ante un futuro incierto, necesitamos revisar criticamente esta memoria y asentaria sobre nuevas bases de conocimiento. David Haimerl rated it it was ok Jan 12, Superflat rated it it was ok Feb 15, Page count correction beevr format.
An aspect that troubled me in particular is that Beevor presents as fact, eyewitness accounts that I know are questioned by serious historians. Published September 1st by Critica first published I agree with Manray9’s review.

Refresh and try again. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. For some reason with Civil War books, that level of detail doesn’t bother me but in this book I found it to be too much. The clumsiness of the 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. Alan Knight rated it it was ok Jan 19, This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
Dani rated it caiida was ok Apr 13, Miijja rated it it was ok Jun 14, The final chapter where the psychology of the remaining German population is briefly raised is also interesting.
Berlín : la caída, 1945
It’s like reading a box score focused on a game’s final minutes when one team had absolutely no chance of winning. Want to Read saving…. I wouldn’t recommend it as there are much better things to read but if you are beglin for a light read that covers a lot of ground go for it.
Beevor is a former officer with the 11th Hussars who served in England and Pa for 5 years before resigning his commission. A LOT of detail about Soviet troop movements. A pretty dismal but factual account of the fall of Berlin in the spring of But it can be read like a novel, just like Jonathan presumed.
Dan Capone rated it it was ok Jun 13, Also it’s not really about Berlin and not even about the Nazis but instead about the Soviets. Shienko rated it it was ok Nov 03, For me it just became a series of descriptions of numerous atrocities.
