Baxter By March 1945, the Red Army had closed in on Berlin. Marshal Zhukov, equipped with almost a million soldiers and 20,000 tanks and guns, launched his assault of the Seelow Heights, and it brought the Russian Army to the gates of the capital. On 20 April, Soviet artillery began a massive bombardment on the doomed city. Heavily illustrated, this fine book examines the Russian attack and Nazi last-ditch defense of Hitler's capital during the final days of the Third Reich. 144 pages, 250 B&W photos, 9½"x 7½", softcover.
