Summary Caddick-Adams recounts the final one hundred days of World War II in Europe, drawing on personal interviews, memoirs, and other sources. He explores the daunting challenges the Allies faced crossing the Rhine along a 300-mile front. He recounts acts of resolve and heroism, of exhausted troops pressing forward, and of first encounters as troops reached the gates of Buchenwald, Belsen, and Dachau.
