Year Zero vividly describes the apocalyptic downfall of the Nazi state in Berlin and the subsequent quadripartite occupation of the shattered capital by the Allied powers. This is a powerful story of victims, bystanders, persecutors, opportunists, heroes and villains. Meticulously researched and rich in historical detail, Year Zero draws on searing eyewitness accounts and archive material to provide a gripping narrative of the Wagnerian climax in Hitler’s capital and the dramatic political, social, cultural and economic changes which occurred in the city during its first year under occupation. The author David McCormack works as a battlefield guide and historian. Previous publications include As the Cherry Blossom Falls: Japan at War 1931–45 and The Berlin Battlefield Guide: Part 1 — The Battle of the Oder-Neisse.
