Original and Enlightening,
This review is from: Berlin at War: Life and Death in Hitler's Capital, 1939-45 (Hardcover)
I picked up a copy of Berlin At War after reading a glowing review by Max Hastings' in The Sunday Times.
The book is well researched and essential reading for WWII enthusiasts, but the style and content are accessible and one doesn't need a specialist knowledge of the period to appreciate the tragedy and arguments Moorhouse deftly conveys. German and Jews were victims of the Third Reich, in differing ways. The Battle of Berlin was also far more horrific than The Battle of Britain.
Highly recommended. It is doubtful that there will be a more sympathetic WWII title this year containing so many original and enlightening insights.
