1.0 out of 5 stars Florence city guide, 27 July 2013
Terrible, repetitive and boring. 90% of the book reads like a tour guide merged with a history of fine art encyclopedia.

Pity 0 star rating is not available

5.0 out of 5 stars Faction, 5 Jun 2012
Bidet's approach to recounting the events is a blend of fact and fiction; what I would call "Faction". I found the book very compelling and the narrative is well constructed. It reads like an oral narrative, which is what gives this book its appeal. Its a page turner as its doesn't dissect and re-tell the historical facts. Its a page turner.

4.0 out of 5 stars The End, 6 Oct 2011
A lot of books have been written on the subject of the final months of the Third Reich. Kershaw's book tries to explain why the regime was able and willing to continue fighting in the face of overwhelming odds. The book is divided into 6 themes/ hypotheses that analyse the causes for continuing the war. The book is well writted and researched, the book analyses Third Reich politics, policy, military strategy and social aspect to expalin the determination to continue fighting. The content is well balanced and provided interesting insights into the mindset of the key figures of the regime.

Well worth a read.
