Berlin is burning
The reich has fallen
We stand at the gates of Berlin
With two and a half million men
With six thousand tanks in our ranks
Use them as battering rams
Artillery leading our way
A million grenades has been launched
The nazis must pay for their crimes
The wings of the eagle has been broken
Marshall Zhukov’s orders:
Serve me Berlin on a plate!
Disregard the losses
The city is ours to take
The price of a war must be payed
Millions of lives has been lost
The price must be paid by the men
That started the war in the 30’s
The spring of the year 45′
The year when the nazis will fall
We’re inside the gates of Berlin
The beak of the eagle is broken
Comrade Stalins orders:
Serve me it’s head on a plate
Disregard the losses
The eagle’s land is ours to take
The Battle of Berlin 16th April – 2nd May 1945, marked the end of World War II.
16 April, the Soviets released a spectacular barrage of artillery into the heart of Berlin while its armies surrounded the city from the north, east, and south. The Allies advance from the west and hold position some 100 km (60 miles) outside of Berlin in an effort to reduce friendly crossfire with the Soviets.
20 April, Hitler’s birthday, a couple hours before mid-day, the Allies make a special effort to bomb the city with almost a thousand bombers for two hours.
21 April, Soviet Field Marshall Zhukov and his 1st Belorussian army overrun the German lines and break into Berlin from the North.
30 April, The Red Army captures the Reichstag while Hitler commits suicide after ordering his body incinerated to avoid capture and humiliation.

2 May, The fall of Berlin is complete, the war in Europe officially ends.
