The End – Hitler’s Germany, 1944-45
Hay Festival 2012
What made Germany keep fighting when defeat was inevitable? In the end the regime had to be stamped out town by town with a level of brutality almost without precedent. The historian raises the most profound questions about the nature of the Second World War, about the Third Reich and about how ordinary people behave in extreme circumstances.
