5.0 out of 5 stars A Courageous Mother from Koenigsberg, 20 May 2013
This review is from: We Came From Konigsberg (Kindle Edition)
Max Overton has again taken me on an adventure, this time in a more recent historical time than his Scarab series (which I loved), one that is filled with drama, but in the middle of the drama is a tale of a very courageous woman. Mr Overton's meticulous research into the events of WWII, and his descriptions of day to day life, puts you right there with Mutti and her five children as they flee from Koenigsberg to the West, in the midst of a freezing winter, no food, no shelter, only what can be found on the journey, and then the brutal atrocities unavoidable in wartorn Europe . This story is based on real people, real events and comes from a different perspective than most stories set in WWII. It is both heart warming and heart wrenching, and an impossible book to put down, until the emotional end. Loved it, recommend it, a must read. Thankyou again Mr Overton for taking me on a journey into the past.
