Stephen Ambrose tells the miraculous story of how a single American company took the Remagen Bridge over the Rhine, a river Hitler had considered an impenetrable barrier. John Keegan takes us to Berlin in April 1945, all the way to Hitler's bunker, for the most intense city siege in history. Caleb Carr illuminates the only war Hitler ever won - the 1939 Blitzkreig campaign over Poland. We also meet Major General Edward King, the unsung America hero of Bataan; learn how forces inside the Japanese army worked to keep Emperor Hirohito's surrender from being announced to his people; and experience two riveting eyewitness accounts: the diary of an American tail gunner who made 26 bombing raids over Europe, and the story of a Japanese kamikaze who somehow survived his suicide mission against an American carrier.

    Listener Opinions

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Travis | 7/1/2011

      " Collection of brief articles/accounts on various, lesser-known episodes from the Second World War. Some are absolute gems, such as the account of the attempted palace coup in Japan at the very end of the war? "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sean Seger | 6/5/2011

      " Well like any collection of essays, the book is only as good as the current essay you are reading. Most of them were really well done. Some weren't. But overall it was a good book that brought to light new takes and details on events I kind of take for granted that I already knew. "

      " Like the subtitle says, PERSPECTIVES. It has been a while, but I REMEMBER reading it. "

      " Great collection of deep views into many different facets of this manifold topic. I was particulary impressed with the stories of the attempted coup in Japan, the Flying Fortress tailgunner diary, and the behind-the-scenes stories of Bataan and the Bridge at Remagen. "
