About the Program
British historian Max Hastings discusses his book, "Armageddon: The Battle for Germany, 1944-1945." In it, he explains how the allied armies overtook Berlin in the final months of World War II. The author researched previously unreleased Russian archival documents as well as transcripts from interviews with Russian veterans. This weekend marks the 60th Anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe and "Armageddon" also deals with the treatment of civilians during the final eight months of the war.
