The Osprey book is also a good primer

Response to A historical question on Battle of Berlin

For the overall battle... what groups and armies were involved, where they moved to, when. And for both sides German and USSR

In some ways the biggest "last stand" was the battle of Seelow Heights on the plain approaching Berlin from the East. The Germans had prepared massive Kursk style defensive belt with entrenched tanks, guns, infantry, etc. The Russians attacked it at night using search lights behind their tanks to blind the German troops.

The Russian epic film, Fall of Berlin, from 1949 has a good visual recreation of the whole assault from Seelow to the Reichstag.
