Fine condition in a nearly fine dustwrapper. In April 1945, the German Ninth Army, withdrawing before the final Red Army attacks on Berlin, was encircled by the Soviet forces near the small town of Halbe, south-east of Hitler's capital. Their orders were to attempt to break out and a brutal battle ensued with the loss of many lives, soldiers & civilians. This is a collection of first-hand accounts telling the story of the battle and its aftermath from the German perspective. Black cloth boards, gilt title to spine. B/w photos.

Pictorial dustwrapper is lightly rubbed and creased across top edge.
