This is an auction for BERLIN: THE DOWNFALL 1945 by Antony Beevor.

"Covering the months from January to May in 1945, as Soviet and other Allied troops advanced to Berlin, British historian Antony Beevor (Stalingrad) opts for direct narrative with overheard quotes from the main players, making the reader an eavesdropper to Hitler and Stalin's obiter dicta. BERLIN: THE DOWNFALL 1945 is based on material from former Soviet files as well as from German, American, British, French and Swedish archives."

Amazon.com review:

"By December 1944 many of the three million citizens of Berlin had stopped giving the Nazi salute, and jokes circulated that the most practical Christmas gift of the season was a coffin. And for good reason, military historian Antony Beevor writes in this richly detailed reconstruction of events in the final days of Adolf Hitler's Berlin. Following savage years of campaigns in Russia, the Nazi regime had not only failed to crush Bolshevism, it had brought the Soviet army to the very gates of the capital. That army, ill-fed and hungry for vengeance, unloosed its fury on Berlin in a siege that would cost hundreds of thousands of lives on both sides. Drawing on unexplored Soviet and German archives and dozens of eyewitness accounts, Beevor brings us a harrowing portrait of the battle and its terrible aftermath, which would colour world history for years to follow."
