5.0 out of 5 stars Just like Eastenders, 19 Sept. 2011
A great series full of super stories, and the really good thing is that at no time is the 'soap like' drama interupted by any real attempt at historical accuracy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb book., 11 July 2008
This book is a real eye-opener! I was in turn shocked and horrified by the detailed accounts of atrocities that this book reveals. That World War 2 was essentialy a 'race war' at (least as far as the Nazi's were concerned) is a fact brought home brilliantly by the author. Buy this book but don't read it at bedtime!

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential read, 17 Feb. 2007
You may have read similar stories to those retold in the early chapters of this book, but persevere, because the second half of this work is superb.The burial of the "unknown soldier" is written with real feeling and anything that brings home to us a sense of the awful grief that the war engendered is most welcome. As a Great War enthusiast I sometimes get bogged down in the mud and wire of the Western Front but this book sets the whole war and it's massive human cost into a new perspective.
