Publisher's Summary

From America's preeminent military historian, Stephen E. Ambrose, comes a brilliant telling of the war in Europe, from D-Day, June 6, 1944, to the end; 11 months later, on May 7, 1945. To create this astonishing narrative, Ambrose draws from his 5 acclaimed works about that conflict, particularly from the definitive and comprehensive D-Day and Citizen Soldiers. As always, it is the ordinary boys and men who command Ambrose's attention and awe. The Victors tells their collective story of how citizens became soldiers in the best army in the world. Ambrose draws on thousands of interviews and oral histories, from the high command - Eisenhower, Bradley, Patton - on down through officers and enlisted men, to recreate the last year of the Second World War when the Allied soldiers pushed the Germans out of France, chased them across Germany, and destroyed the Nazi regime.

The Stephen Ambrose highlight reel

Not a whole lot new here if you read Stephen Ambrose books. Stephen Ambrose seems to use passages from other books he's written constantly. I have read 5 of his books and all have whole paragrphs ripped from one or another of his other books.

I sort of feel cheated actually.

Interesting Listening

Ambrose is a master of this kind of work. The narration is clear and does not get in the way of the great writing. I had hoped for more of an insight into Eisenhower whereas the work is really much more about the whole European Theatre of Operations. There is a fair amount of material which is really a cut & paste from Band Of Brothers and/or D Day by the same author but this material is appropriate and does not suffer from repetition. A good listen for anybody who has even the slightest interest in this period of history.
