In Rick Atkinson’s The Guns at Last Light: The War in Western Europe, 1944-1945, vol. 3 of the Liberation Trilogy (Henry Holt). The Allied invasion of Europe that represents the closing chapter of the war against Nazi Germany is one of the great military accounts of all time, and the closing months of the war in Europe represent one of the most dramatic periods of history in any recent century. Historian Atkinson tells this story just about as thoroughly as it should be told, and no one with an interest in World War II should be without this volume.
