First of all why I liked this book, was that it was very easy to read. Author perfectly described historical events to "simple" people to understand. Now I know more things about history. I think if there were such books while I was in school, I could get best marks, because at school I didn't understand anything about history, it was "dark forest" to me. And such books like this made me to understand so many things. I liked that author used these artistic features in writing to describe history, these sentences with feelings...I don't know how to express... these feelings made me shiver, even cry. Now I have huge wish to visit Berlin and famous place in Poland. I want to see and feel everything myself.
In Lithuanian translation edition are colorful pictures in a middle of book, which I really liked to watch and imagine every scenes in my head.
Now after this book I want to read more books about Second World War.
