5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book, 8 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Germany, 1945: From War to Peace (Hardcover)
I couldn't disagree more with the previous reviewer. I am one of the first people to be put off by dry books crammed with figures statistics.
This is a highly readable study by a professional historian of German descent of 1945....the last months of the war in Germany and the first months of the allied occupation and the process of rebuilding a modern state out of the ruins.
Figures are used with skill to portray the apocalyptic scale of the problem and the extent of the destruction and dislocation.
Eg 450,000 German soldiers were killed in January 1945 (more by a considerable margin than the military losses of the western allies throughout the whole war).
