David L. Robbins' gripping tale of Stalingrad, War of the Rats (RB# 95925), topped best-seller lists across the country. The End of War focuses on the final months of World War II. Using both real and fictional characters, Robbins tells the riveting story of the race for Berlin. In 1945, world leaders Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin are poised like gods, shaping the course of history as they consider the military value of Berlin. Their momentous decisions will be realized on a very human level in the lives of a Russian soldier, a German cellist, and an American photojournalist. Although The End of War is a novel, Robbins makes extensive use of interviews with survivors, historical documents, biographies, and analyses. His accuracy creates unforgettable visions of the warfare in this superb thriller, and veteran narrator George Guidall's performance highlights the tightly-controlled suspense.
