Berlin. La Caida : Antony Beevor :
Superflat rated it it was ok Feb 15, BerlinGermany. Books by Antony Beevor. A LOT of detail about Soviet troop movements. There are interesting stories to be told, and he presents several, but in the end there’s simply not enough to support anony book of this l Beevor’s skills as a writer simply aren’t lq to overcome the subject matter.
Also the referencing is not to my liking at all.
Shienko rated it it was ok Nov 03, 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.
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.
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.
Berlín : la caída, 1945
Jesse rated it it was ok Feb 03, I think the book is written very good and the research is very complete but it was too much to get a good overview of the fall of Berlin.
Such discoveries make me question other ‘facts’ presented by an author. 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.
An aspect that troubled me in particular is that Beevor presents as fact, eyewitness accounts that I know are questioned by serious historians.
I agree with Manray9’s review. Trivia About The Fall of Berli Kristine rated it it was ok Mar 11, Refresh and try again. He has published several popular histories on the Second World War and 20th century in general.

Berlín : la caída, by Antony Beevor (2 star ratings)
There are conflicting statements and comparisons between Nazis and Soviets. Antony Beevor reconstruye en este libro la ultima gran batalla europea de la segunda guerra mundial y la estremecedora agonia del Tercer Reich.
Dejair rated it it was ok Apr 26, Linda Daniels rated it it was ok Feb 09, For me it just became a series of descriptions of numerous atrocities. David Haimerl rated it it was ok Jan 12, Meire Ella rated it it was ok Aug 15, 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 final chapter where the psychology of the remaining German population is briefly raised is also interesting. Mads Kristian rated it it was ok Mar 20, No trivia or quizzes yet.
Sami No, it is not a novel. As a history buff, I found this book rather fascinating, although it’s not for the faint-of-heart. 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.
