218 pp, large 8vo (9 3/8" H). B&w photographs, maps/battle plans. "By the midsummer of 1943 the Wehrmacht had fallen back behind the Straits of Sicily in the Mediterranean and had begun to build, with feverish haste, the Atlantic Wall in the west and the East Wall in Russia - in fact to construct their Fortress Europe, with the intention of defending it to the last. Here the author sets out simply and concisely the political, economic and military organization of the Third Reich, its strength and its weaknesses. He traces the almost unbelievable chain of events within Germany during the last two years of the Second World War that saw the Fortress liberated or overrun, and the whole of the Reich engulfed, and then inundated, by the invading armies of the allies. This authoritative account is based mainly on German materials, although other language sources, particularly Russian, Italian and Anglo-American, have also been used in compiling this intriguing narrative." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine,a few tiny foxing marks and very light browning to edges of textblock. Dust jacket is price clipped, has very light edgewear/wrinkling - light wear at top of rear flap-fold, light rubbing.
