This brilliant narrative details the final year of the Second World War, telling the unforgettable stories of those ordinary men who were transformed into soldiers to stop Hitler's engine of hate. Acclaimed military historian Stephen E. Ambrose compiles the oral accounts from his previous bestsellers to archive the gripping moments from D-Day, June 6, 1944, to the end, on May 7, 1945.

The Victors begins with the preparation and training of the Allied Armies and moves to Eisenhower's decision to cross the English Channel to the beaches of Normandy. Soldiers describe their struggles through the bitter winter of 1944 and the battles on the way to Berlin to overcome Hitler. Thirty-two pages of black-and-white photos bring the readers face to face with the unforgettable.

The Victors is an honest account of the lives of the sons, husbands, and brothers who gave their all.
