Abstract:

"In May 1945, as the triumphant Red Army crushed the last pockets of German resistance in central Berlin, French soldiers fought back. They were the last surviving members of SS Charlemagne, the Waffen SS division made up of French volunteers. They were among the final defenders of the city and of Hitler's bunker. Their extraordinary story gives a compelling insight into the dreadful climax of the Battle for Berlin and into the conflicts of loyalty faced by the French in the Second World War. Using extended eyewitness testimony from surviving members of the division, Tony Le Tissier reconstructs in graphic detail the part they played in the desperate combat in the devastated German capital"--Jacket.
