The definitive single-volume history of the second world war . . .
'The Victors' is a breathtaking new work from bestselling historian Stephen E Ambrose. It follows the momentous events of the war from D-Day, 6 June 1944, through to the final days when the Allied soldiers pushed the German troops out of France, chased them across Germany, and, on 7 May 1945, destroyed the Nazi regime.
At the centre of this epic drama are the citizen soldiers, the boys who became men as they fought, proving eventually unbeatable. Drawing from and integrating his five previous books on the conflict, Ambrose creates one of the most exciting single-volume histories of the Second World War ever written. 'The Victors' is a compelling celebration of military genius and heroism, and of camaraderie and courage.
