Germany lost the war long before May 1945. But Hitler refused to surrender, instead dragging the country into the abyss. In our special this time, David Porter analyses Hitler’s last battle.

He then describes the battle itself, from the suburbs to the centre of the city, drawing out the key features of the Third Reich’s apocalyptic last stand.
