Description

A dramatic countdown of the final months of World War II in Europe, The Last 100 Days brings to life the waning power and the ultimate submission of the Third Reich. To reconstruct the tumultuous hundred days between Yalta and the fall of Berlin, John Toland traveled more than 100,000 miles in twenty-one countries and interviewed more than six hundred people-from Hitler's personal chauffeur to Generals von Manteuffel, Wenck, and Heinrici; from underground leaders to diplomats; from top Allied field commanders to brave young GIs. Toland adeptly wove together these interviews using research from thousands of primary sources. When it was first published, The Last 100 Days made history, revealing after-action reports, staff journals, and top-secret messages and personal documents previously unavailable to historians. Since that time it has come to be regarded as one of the greatest historical narratives of the twentieth century.

Professional reviews

"The late author wrote many books about WWII, but this one, first published in 2003, broke new ground because of its use of previously unreleased documents and personal interviews. The audiobook is now available, and the material is just as enlightening as it was on paper. Narrator Ralph Cosham brings an authoritative British accent to the work, and heÕs suitably respectful of the awesome story heÕs telling. His variations in pitch and his delivery of especially painful passages are effective and engrossing. He also has excellent diction and keeps to a lively pace. Over the course of this long book, however, his steady narration lacks a bit of variety. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
