BeschreibungMarch - April 1945. Victory for the Allies was only a matter of time. Two great armies were racing towards each other crushing German resistance in their path.Berlin was the prize, which the Soviets were in the event to seize. Instead Eisenhower, always more a political, rather than military, figure opted to destroy the German armies in and around the Ruhr. Churchill's warnings were ignored and Montgomery's plans overruled.What drove the decision-making at this vital time? Was it high level strategy or naked personal ambition? Charles Whiting sets out to examine the facts in his own distinctive style and reaches a conclusion, no matter how unpalatable.
PortraitCharles Whiting is acknowledged as one of the foremost authorities on the Second World War and during his literary career has written on virtually every aspect of that conflict. He lives in York.
PressestimmenAn in-depth and thought-provoking study of Eisenhower's character, performance and motivation.
