Publisher's Summary

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.Includes:
