The battle for Berlin in 1945 was one of the most violent ever fought for a city. For Stalin it was the ultimate prize. More than 300,000 Soviet soldiers alone died in the attack.
After four years of relentless Allied bombing, Berlin was faced with its ultimate test - the final battle, in which no building or street was left unmarked as the fanatical and terrified remnants of Hitler's armies attempted to hold back the 'barbarians from the East'.
