Hitler’s Last Year

On the 8th of May 1945, a darkness was lifted across Europe and the world as people celebrated victory over Nazi Germany. From the D-Day landings on the beaches of Normandy in June 1944 it took almost a full year to win the war.

Facing defeat Adolf Hitler became evermore relentlessly determined to fight to the very finish. As his Third Reich collapsed around him the brutality of the warfare and the fanaticism of the Nazis only increased, those 11 months turned out to be the most relentless and brutal period of the Second World War, leaving an eternal scar on the hearts of those who survived.
