Stephen E. Ambrose draws from and integrates in this one-volume history of the Second World War his five acclaimed books about the conflict, making this the definitive history of the war. THE VICTORS is woven into a chronological continuing narrative, beginning with the preparation and training of the Allied armies and Eisenhower's decision to cross the English Channel to capture the Normandy beaches on D-DAY. From Utah bridge to The Bulge and on to Hitler's Eagle's nest in Germany, Ambrose describes the momentous events of the war until the final days when the Allied soldiers pushed the German troops out of France, chased them across Germany, and destroyed the Nazi regime, making this the definitive history of the Second World War. At the centre of this epic drama are the citizen soldiers, the boys who became men as they fought and rose to the occasion, proving eventually unbeatable. THE VICTORS displays Ambrose's scholarship and authority, his readability, and the powerful love and admiration for these young men that make his books on war so moving and popular.
