How Germany Finally Fell

January 10, 2015 With Sir Max Hastings

After D Day the general expectation was that Germany would be defeated within a few months if only because they had less than one-tenth of the planes and tanks than did the Allies. Instead it was  a “long, hard slog.” Sir Max Hastings, a great war historian, joined us for this program in 2004 to present the detailed overview, as developed in his book “Armageddon,” of the ultimate defeat of the Nazi nation.  His expert and fluent account of the march to Berlin  is here richly illustrated with many sound clips from the battlefields…….plus Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters singing “There’ll Be a Hot Time in the Town of Berlin.”
