Williams has drawn on the memories of an eloquent band of interviewees. A valuable and sobering re-evaluation of the liberation of northwestern Europe. ― Sunday Times

Nightfall, 6 June 1944. D-Day is over and the Allies have carved a tenuous foothold in ‘Fortress Europe’. The future of Europe hangs in the balance as Hitler’s formidable SS Panzer troops threaten to drive them back into the sea. D-DAY TO BERLIN is the remarkable story of the Allied struggle for survival – the battle from the beaches of Normandy to the heart of Hitler’s Reich and ultimate victory just eleven months later. The campaign to free Europe from Nazi oppression through the collective operations from D-DAY TO BERLIN mark one of the greatest ever military offensives. The Allies overcame initial setbacks to inflict a devastating defeat on Hitler’s crack divisions in France – a victory that was threatened just months later in the bitter winter fighting of the Battle of the Bulge. The final crossing of the Rhine and the advance into Germany changed the course of European history forever. In D-DAY TO BERLIN we meet men and women from both sides – British, American and German soldiers – whose bravery and endurance made the final push through Europe the defining drama of the Second World War.

Review: This book tells the story of D Day onwards in an excellent way, lots of interesting stories, and a brilliant guide to this vital part of Allied history.

Andrew Williams worked as a senior producer on BBC Television’s flagship current affairs programmes, Panorama and Newsnight, covering the major stories of the day. In 1997 he moved to BBC Documentaries and spent the next eleven years writing and directing television documentaries and drama documentaries for the BBC and international co-producers, including the award winning series, ‘The Battle of the Atlantic’. He has written two best selling histories of the Second World War; ‘The Battle of the Atlantic’, and ‘D-Day to Berlin’. His first novel, ‘The Interrogator’, was shortlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Thriller of the Year Award and the Ellis Peters Historical Fiction Award, and it was the Daily Mail’s debut thriller of 2009. His second, ‘To Kill A Tsar’, was one of the Daily Mail’s thrillers of 2010 and was shortlisted for The Scott Prize for Historical Fiction and the Ellis Peters Award. HIs 1960’s espionage thriller, Witchfinder, was one of The Times Literary Supplement Books of the Year. Set inside the British intelligence services in the weeks following the defection of master spy,  Kim Philby to the Soviet Union, it tells the story of an MI5 and CIA mole hunt that spirals dangerously out of control. Andrew’s latest novel, The Prime Minister’s Affair, is the story of a plot to blackmail a Labour Prime Minister and bring down the British Government. The Daily Mail described Andrew ‘as one of Britain’s most accomplished thriller writers’, and the Times Literary Supplement noted that ‘if le Carré needs a successor, Williams has all the equipment for the role.’
