Audiobook Summary:From America's preeminent military historian, Stephen E. Ambrose, comes a brilliant telling of the war in Europe, from D-Day, June 6, 1944, to the end; 11 months later, on May 7, 1945. To create this astonishing narrative, Ambrose draws from his 5 acclaimed works about that conflict, particularly from the definitive and comprehensive D-Day and Citizen Soldiers . As always, it is the ordinary boys and men who command Ambrose's attention and awe. The Victors tells their collective story of how citizens became soldiers in the best army in the world. Ambrose draws on thousands of interviews and oral histories, from the high command - Eisenhower, Bradley, Patton - on down through officers and enlisted men, to recreate the last year of the Second World War when the Allied soldiers pushed the Germans out of France, chased them across Germany, and destroyed the Nazi regime.
