Ten characters, ten dramatic stories, ten extraordinary days, all leading to the one historic event: the end of the biggest war the world has ever known. Weaving the stories of ten very different people caught up in the liberation of Europe from the grip of Nazi terror, Ten Days To Victory evokes the climactic last moments of the Second World War. Their diaries, letters and interviews provide unique insight into the dramatic events of some of the most gripping and terrifying days in history.
