Russian (or Allied) accounts of Berlin, April 1945 to Potsdam

Looking for memoirs or histories (or fiction, if necessary) of Berlin from the period between the April/May 1945 collapse to the Potsdam conference told from the Russian perspective. Also interested in the first Americans to show up and how they were or were not accommodated.

Additionally, American or other allied memoirs from that specific time and place, the more detailed and hands-on the better. Where the different levels of support staff lived, how they set up the Potsdam conference, what kinds of cooperation and awkwardness ensued.
Like The Good German
, only non-fiction. (Or fiction, why not, if something really good is out there.)
