Description

Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post, Best of 2010
"Roger Moorhouse, a British writer of popular histories, describes life in the German capital from the confident and complacent (if also fearful) early months through the utter devastation ultimately wrought by Allied bombing and the ground attacks from east and west. Moorhouse is sympathetic to ordinary Berliners, especially as the bombing intensified and the city turned into an inferno, but he doesn't sentimentalize them."

Alfred S. Regnery, The American Spectator
"There is no end to books about the Germans and World War II, the Holocaust, and the battles and the evils of Nazism, but very few that explain the life of German civilians during those awful years. Berlin at War, by historian Roger Moorhouse, reminds us that war is not only about the fighting men, but the civilians as well.... This fascinating and beautifully written book tells the heart-rending story of those who died and those who survived--a part of World War II history that we all should know."

Financial Times, holiday round-up
"Berlin was the least fascist of any major German city yet it was among the most heavily bombed by Allies and its women suffered mass gang-rape by the Red Army. The searing experiences of Berliners are brought to life through often deeply morally compromised personal stories."
