Publisher's Synopsis

The Victors is a breathtaking new work from bestselling historian Stephen E. Ambrose, author of the classic book Band of Brothers.

It follows the momentous events of the Second World War from D-Day, 6 June 1944, through to the final days when the Allied soldiers pushed the German troops out of France, chased them across Germany. Finally, on VE Day, 7 May 1945, they could celebrate the destruction of the Nazi regime as victory in Europe was secured. At the centre of this epic drama are the citizen soldiers, the boys who became men as they fought, eventually proving unbeatable.

Drawing from his extensive research for his previous bestselling books on the conflict, Ambrose creates one of the most exciting single-volume histories of World War II ever written. The Victors is a compelling celebration of military genius and heroism, and of camaraderie and courage.
