That afternoon, with the Soviet front lines just a few miles away, the Führer held a final conference with his most senior generals. It would be the last time many would see Hitler alive. The news he relayed was, for the first time, stripped of all fantasy and optimism. The Reich was almost at an end. Berlin would be encircled in a matter of hours. Defeat was inevitable.

One Final Bonus – Alex Kershaw Quote 

“Bavaria, May 8, 1945.
While civilians embraced…and took to the streets around the globe…many infantrymen in Europe, brutalized and broken, sat alone with their grief or paced their rest areas in mournful silence. “There is V-E Day without, but no peace within,” wrote the war’s most decorated infantryman, Audie Murphy…”People were damaged,” remembered Thunderbird Guy Prestia. “It was like we’d been in a car crash. There was trauma. It takes a while to get over that.”…”There was great relief,” recalled [Lieutenant Colonel Felix] Sparks, “but no celebrations.”….It was hard to believe, hard to accept that the killing and dying were finally over. There would be no more Anzios, Salernos, or Reipertswillers. Finally, after the death of 135,576 young Americans, Europe was free.”
