My favourite book on the Second World War,
By A Customer
This review is from: Panzer Commander (Mass Market Paperback)
This book is thoughtful and honest. It is one mans viewpoint being clearly and simply shown throughout one of the most important eras of history. Many will read this to discover more about the Second World War (as I did). People reading for these reasons will not be disappointed, (he was involved in conflict on mainland Europe, North Africa and the feared eastern front). Despite his wartime experiences being very clear and interesting, I was surprised to find myself much more interested in his post-war experiences. His style is modest and maybe won't grab some readers in the same way as a novel would. This book is more than that. Big explosions aren't the point or his intention, if you need that, don't bother with this book.
This book feels like a father reflecting upon his life to his son and that is what makes it so very special.
