3.0 out of 5 stars Exciting but lacking a strategic context, 4 July 2011
This review is from: Battleground Prussia: The Assault on Germany's Eastern Front 1944-45 (General Military) (Hardcover)
This is a good read. It captures the confusion in the German army as the Russians pour through East Prussia and Poland. And it is especially good in detailing the ordeal of the German refugees and the heroic effort of the German Navy to rescue as many people as possible. The selection of eye witness accounts is first class. But as a military history it has 2 main faults: (1) the maps are average and there are not enough of them. This makes it difficult to follow the detailed descriptions in the text.(2) The detailed eye witness accounts are difficult to place in the context of the whole front. It needed better Army or AG group wide context in order to properly understand each of the tactical battles described. Periodic summries of the orders of battle would also have helped.
