Berlin Part 3, April-July 1945, The Early Allied Co-Administration of Berlin

2 years ago

This 8-part series is a book study of Giles Milton's excellent work, "Checkmate in Berlin," interspersed with Scott Dreyer's commentary and explanation. The series focuses on Berlin from 1945-1949, which was a global flashpoint and the turning point between the end of WWII and the start of the Cold War. A history major and licensed history teacher since 1987, Dreyer lived in Germany 1985-89 and has traveled extensively in Europe. Part 3 talks about Hitler's suicide, the Soviet occupation of Berlin, and the first uneasy weeks when American, Russian, and British troops shared control of the defeated capital.
