Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. La memoria lz que es la historia se nos aparece hoy mucho menos como el mero relato de lo ocurrido en el pasado que como un instrumento de analisis del presente.
Al termino de un siglo de expectativas fallidas, y ante un futuro incierto, necesitamos revisar criticamente esta memoria y asentaria sobre nuevas bases de conocimiento.
Mas reciente aun que Contrastes, Mem La memoria colectiva que es la historia se nos aparece hoy mucho menos como el mero relato de lo ocurrido en el pasado que como un instrumento de analisis del presente. Antony Beevor reconstruye en este libro la ultima gran batalla europea de la segunda guerra mundial y la estremecedora agonia del Tercer Reich. Con riguorsas tecnicas documentales semejantes a las empleadas en Stalingrado pero con mayor aliento epico y mas densidad politica, Beevor describe tanto la complejidad de las grandes operaciones militares y la logica de las decisiones de sus mandos como los sentimientos de la gente comun atrapada en un torbellino de fuego y metralla.

Berlin. La Caida : Antony Beevor :
Lists with This Book. Beevor’s skills as a writer simply aren’t able cajda overcome the subject matter. He does an admirable job of making an interesting read out of lw rather excruciatingly boring topic. The clumsiness of the Soviets, the megalomania of Stalin, the naivety of the Americans, the irrelevance of the British, all play out against the pathetic condition of the German people.
There are interesting stories to be told, and he presents several, but in the end there’s simply not enough to support a book of this l Beevor’s skills as a writer simply aren’t able to overcome the subject matter. There are interesting stories to be told, and he presents several, but in the end there’s simply not enough to support a book of this length. It’s like reading a box score focused on a game’s final minutes when one team had absolutely no chance of winning.
An aspect that troubled me in particular is that Beevor presents as fact, eyewitness accounts that I know are questioned by serious historians. Such discoveries make me question other ‘facts’ presented by an author.
A LOT of detail about Soviet troop movements. For some reason with Civil War books, that level of detail doesn’t bother me but in this book I found it to be too much. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. It is not a waste of time to read this as I learned a lot of details about the Eastern Front but I think that it wasn’t time well spent.
Also it’s not really about Berlin and not even about the Nazis but instead about the Soviets. There are conflicting statements and comparisons between Nazis and Soviets. Also the referencing is not to my liking at all.
At the same time someone who attempts to deal with such a broad topic should be commended but maybe the author should have narrowed the scope si It is not a waste of time to read this as I learned a lot of details about the Eastern Front but I think that it wasn’t time well spent.
At the same time someone who attempts to deal with such a broad topic should be commended but maybe the bfevor should have narrowed the scope significantly.

Also the main message that’s repeated, in rather simple terms, is that the Red Army was bad, seemingly ignoring the battles and reality ajtony the ground war. The final chapter xntony the psychology of the remaining German population is briefly raised is also interesting. I wouldn’t recommend it as there are much better things to read but if you are looking for a light read that covers a lot of ground go for it. I agree with Manray9’s review. For me it just became a series of descriptions of numerous atrocities.
Far too much details for me. I got lost in the book. I think cxida book is written very good and the research is very complete but it was too much to get a good overview of the fall of Berlin.
beflin A belin dismal but factual account of the fall of Berlin in the spring of As a history buff, I found this book rather fascinating, although it’s not for caiea faint-of-heart.
