There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The book has good reviews and offers a perfect overview to the gigantic subject.
The narration is fluid and the chapter division quite helpful.
More importantly, the author keeps away from overdescription of unit positions, movements of troops, etc. which can blur the vision sometimes. This is especially true for a campaign like Barbarossa.
Its is quite often that military history authors lacking politic and economic knowledge prefers to concentrate on purely militaristic matters.
However, I had a really good time reading the book but was quite dissapointed and would say frustrated that the book was very light on:
- The Leningrad siege
- The battle for Berlin
- The role of the luftwaffe and the war in the air
Despite the above, there are some really brillant parts such as the Stalingrad chapters, or the addition of recorded dialogues between Hitler and his staff, or personal accounts such as the 2 ou 3 pages long account of the russian sniper.
Finally, I recomend the reading of Guderian's book "Panzer Leader" which presents the conflict through the eye of the famous tank theorist and leader.
