Overview

"The novelist Hans Erich Nossack was forty-two when the Allied incendiary bombardments of German cities began, and he watched the destruction of Hamburg - the city where he was born and where he would later die - from across its Elbe River. He heard the whistle of the bombs and the singing of shrapnel; he watched his neighbors flee the firestorm; he wondered if his home - and his manuscripts - would survive the devastation. The End is his memoir of the annihilation of the city, written only three months after the bombing. A firsthand account of one of the most notorious events of World War II, The End is also a meditation on war and hope, history and its devastation." In the first English-language edition of The End, Nossack's text has been translated and introduced by Joel Agee and is accompanied by the photographs of Erich Andres.
