Citizen Soldiers begins on June 7, 1944 and ends on May 7, 1945. In between are graphic re-enactments of the battles that finally defeated Germany. Ambrose draws on hundreds of interviews and oral histories from men on both sides who were there, and re-creates the experiences for the reader: fighting in the cold and wet, gruesome wounds, combat exhaustion, looting, and random destruction - the suffering of warfare. He describes how citizen soldiers overcame their fear and inexperience to win the war in a definitive book on the most important time frame in World War II.

Stephen A. Ambrose draws from and integrates in this one-volume history of the Second World War his five acclaimed books about the conflict, most particularly from the definitive and comprehensive D-DAY and CITIZEN SOLDIERS. THE VICTORS is woven into a chronological continuing narrative, beginning with the preparation and training of the Allied armies and Eisenhower's decision to cross the English Channel to capture the Normandy beaches on D-DAY. From Utah bridge to The Bulge and on to Hitler's Eagle's nest in Germany, Ambrose describes the momentous events of the war until the final days when the Allied soldiers pushed the German troops out of France, chased them across Germany, and destroyed the Nazi regime, making this the definitive history of the Second World War. At the centre of this epic drama are the citizen soldiers, the boys who became men as they fought and rose to the occasion, proving eventually unbeatable. THE VICTORS displays Ambrose's scholarship and authority, his readability, and the powerful love and admiration for these young men that make his books on war so moving and popular.
