As a military historian Max Hastings has few equals. * Times Literary Supplement *
Max Hastings now stands in the first rank of writers on modern war. * Financial Times *
Armageddon offers an impressively researched, beautifully crafted narrative of the Second World War's European finale. -- Douglas Porch * Times Literary Supplement *
Splendid . . . A book anyone with an interest in modern warfare will want to read. * New York Times Book Review *
Hastings writes with authority, as well as humanity, about the realities of combat--the fear, smells, hunger, humiliation and the horrendous wounds inflicted . . . Every leader contemplating a military operation, for whatever reason, should read this book and take several deep breaths. * The Wall Street Journal *
