As the Western Allies were fighting their way eastwards, the Red Army was reaching its point of revenge. – Most Highly Recommended. The Germans were unlucky to have Berlin fall to the Red Army. The bitter war on the East Front was bitterly fought to the very end and culminated in the suicide of Hitler and the orgy of revenge as the Red Army spent its blood lust. After the fall of the Baltic States and East Prussia, even the most fanatical Nazis could be in no doubt that the 1,000 year Reich was to end very quickly in blood and fire. The Red Army was at its peak with a plentiful supply of vehicles, weapons and ammunition sent by Britain and the US at great cost and produced by Soviet factories that were running at full pelt. There was no shortage of fuel, food and alcohol. Facing this well provisioned force was a pitiful collection of the remnants of the German military with a sprinkling of volunteers, old men, sick soldiers and young boys. Fuel was rapidly running out as were, weapons and ammunition. Food was scarce and medical facilities chaotic. This collection of rare images and concise text paints a vivid picture of the end of the Third Reich.
