To VE Day Through German Eyes

The Final Defeat of Nazi Germany

by Jonathan Trigg
Publication Date: 01/08/2020
RRP  $59.95 $44.50
After the collapse of the German Army in the West in August 1944, the western Allies raced towards the borders of the Reich itself, and in the East the victorious Red Army was doing the same--everyone believed the war would be over by Christmas. But somehow, Nazi Germany managed to stave off final defeat until May the following year. In the end the agony was brought to a close with the hammer and sickle flying over the ruins of Berlin. The much-vaunted "Thousand Year Reich" had lasted just a dozen years, but it had wrought havoc across the globe. With defeat came the wholesale surrender of the once-proud Wehrmacht; hosts of men suddenly found themselves miles from home in territories ravaged by war. Among their ranks were thousands of non-Germans from all over Europe, men, mostly ex-Waffen-SS, who had thrown in their lot with the Germans; they were now "collaborators" and "traitors" and would return home to face the justice of the victors. Previous histories have focused on the fate of Adolf Hitler and his cronies, but on the German side in particular, as defeat loomed this was a battle that would be fought by junior officers and simple soldiers as the Wehrmacht fell apart. Jonathan Trigg seeks to tell the story of Nazi Germany's final defeat through the voices of the people who witnessed it first-hand. This narrative is written from the "other side" and told as much through the words of the veterans as is possible.
