'A well-researched, fluently-written and utterly absorbing account of what life (and, so very often) death was like for ordinary Germans in the capital of Hitler's Reich during the Second World War. The Berliners' capacity for suffering, for sacrifice, for self-delusion, but also astonishingly for love - and even on occasion humour - is superbly evoked by Moorhouse's cornucopia of new information.' -- Andrew Roberts, author of The Storm of War

'Berlin at War is a well-researched and beautifully composed account, vividly recreating those years of Nazi arrogance, oppression, and corruption, that ended in such terrible destruction and civilian suffering.' -- Antony Beevor

"Roger Moorhouse has a deep knowledge of Wartime Germany... Moorhouse has a nice eye for social detail"
--Sunday Times

"A finely observed social history of Berliners during the war."
--Sunday Times

`Moorhouse has chronicled a largely unknown story with scholarship, narrative verve and, at times, an awful, harrowing immediacy' --Sunday Telegraph

`Moorhouse's evocative social history...brings...the sights, sounds, thoughts and feelings of the ordinary Germans who lived here' --The Telegraph

'Few books on the war genuinely increase the sum of our collective knowledge... but this one does' --Financial Times

`Measured, sympathetic... a fascinating corrective...thorough and engaging' --Mail on Sunday

`Roger Moorhouse has marshalled an impressive range of primary sources...to create a gripping panorama of Berlin at war...'
--The Independent

' it manages to capture the complexities and contradictions of life in Hitler's Germany'
--Irish Times

--The Oldie
Book Description
A portrayal of the German experience during the Second World War - told through the eyes of the citizens of Berlin.


Seems a good price for a hardback.
Would be interesting to read some historical information before visiting, and even compare with life in a British city at the time.( Some very cheap little flats in some areas, considering it's a beautiful capital city.)

excellent deal!!!! bought the book

The Frederick Taylor book is also excellent as is the Antony Beevor one.

So, nothing has changed then, except that we are not directly in the line of fire. (Wikileaks maybe a more interesting read - and it's free).
