Publisher's Summary

In this one-hour history audiobook, discover the decisive events that happened in 1945 that put an end to World War II, the most lethal war of all times.

This audiobook explores the main events of 1945 that finally put an end to the war and what followed.

World War II was without a doubt the single bloodiest conflict that the world had ever known. And it was consistently bloody from beginning to end. Whether you look at the last days of the Third Reich, when faltering defenders - many of them civilians - were systemically butchered by Soviet troops, or the bitter and pointless Japanese struggle against overwhelming odds as the vengeful Americans advanced on their home islands, the loss of life was horrific. And that was all before the first and only nuclear weapons ever to be used in war were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August of 1945.

The war, which had raged since 1939, thus came to a dramatic conclusion with the image of mushroom clouds billowing over Japan. But once the fighting stopped, many found it hard to accept the peace that followed. As the Russians and the Americans sought to stake out their postwar spheres of influence. The war’s devastated battlegrounds would eventually be rebuilt, but the entire world order would be forever altered in its wake as new world powers arose from the ashes of Europe and East Asia.

In this short audiobook, you will know everything you need to know about what happened in 1945 during World War II and beyond.
