5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 25 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Armageddon: A Novel of Berlin (Paperback)
One of the best books I have ever read. The reason I brought this one is because I have worn out my previous Armageddon. It is the story of occupied Germany, and particularly Berlin, from both the Western Allies and the Russian and East German view, from the occupation to the end of the Berlin Airlift. Fictional Characters against a Factual background. Very well written and, I believe, well researched.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Testament to Courage and Freedom of Spirit, 25 Aug 2013
By 
This review is from: Armageddon: A Novel of Berlin (Paperback)
The most wonderful thing about Leon Uris' books are his testament to the eternal indomitable strength of the human spirit This book shows the horrors of the 20 th centuries twin ideologies of evil-Communism and Nazism-and also shows that there are good and bad people in every nation You also eagerly follow the character development -The American army officer Sean O Sullivan who in the end-for all of his millitary courage- shows himself to be weak moral character. The Bruckner family made up of a sadistic father ,cruel opportunistic brother ,weak mother and two remarkable and beautiful sisters Ernestine Bruckner is the heroine of the novel who we fall in love with (something wich is common to most Uris novels) but it is her seemingly weaker sister Hilde who emerges as the stronger of the two .I thought that the suicide of Ernestine at the end was unneccesary ,she seemed to have lived through too much and seemed to be too strong a woman to kill herself over a failed love affair-this was the drawback in an otherwise excellent novel .The other hero of the story is Ulrich Falkenstein who spent years incarcerated by the Nazis becasue of his total opposition to the evil Third Reich and now shows once again -as Mayor of West Berlin-that he will not bend before another tyrannical empire-the Soviet Union

5.0 out of 5 stars First class read., 7 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Armageddon: A Novel of Berlin (Paperback)
I have always been a fan of the Leon Uris novels. The detailed historical descriptions in his books are very good
and the way he blends them into the story is first class. Because of this I can even forgive his occassional anti-
British leanings which rise up in some of his novels ( Trinity,The Haj and to a certain extent Exodus). I will continue
to enjoy them.
