As near as possible to experiencing what it was like to be there. . . It is almost impossible for a reader not to get caught up in the excitement (Giles Foden Guardian)
No writer can surpass Beevor in making sense of a crowded battlefield and in balancing the explanation of tactical manoeuvres with poignant flashes of human detail (Christopher Silvester Daily Express)
'His singular ability to make huge historical events accessible to a general audience recalls the golden age of British narrative history, whose giants include Gibbon, Macaulay and Carlyle' - Boyd Tonkin, "Independent". 'Beevor can be credited with single-handedly transforming the reputation of military history' - David Edgar, "Guardian". Praise for "Stalingrad": 'Superb. Beevor combines a soldier's understanding of war's realities with the narrative technique of a novelist. A tour de force' - Orlando Figes, "Sunday Telegraph".'As readable and as captivating as a Tolstoyan epic drama of the scope of War and Peace. Revealing, profound and thoroughly unputdownable, "Stalingrad" is an extraordinary achievement which transcends its genre' - Vitali Vitaliev, "Daily Telegraph". Praise for "Berlin - The Downfall": '"Stalingrad" was, I thought, as good as it gets. But "Berlin" is even better. If you ever needed reminding why war is something we should move heaven and earth to avoid, this will do it' - Jeremy Paxman, "Guardian".
'Beevor tells the savage, gripping story of the fall of the city with brilliance and a humane attention to the impact of an epic battle on fragile, individual lives' - Helen Dunmore, "The Times".
