Product description

Review

This book is well presented and extremely readable. Denny did an excellent job casting a totally non-military perspective on the fortress of Konigsberg, unlike most WW2 books that focus more so from a military strategy point of view. She presented Konigsberg and its rich history as the cultural gem of East Prussia, and beyond the broken families and the lives lost, a piece of human history was destroyed when the Russian conquerors practically razed the city. Even in the post-war years, Russian authorities deliberately refused to maintain or outright demolish buildings of historical value in order to wipe out Konigsberg, now Kaliningrad, from German memory ... This book is a wonderful source for those looking for the human side of war. Glorious battles and duels of ideologies aside, it is the civilians who truly suffer, and Denny did a great job illustrating it with first-hand accounts. --World War II Database," May 2007

I read The Fall of Hitler s Fortress City: The Battle for Königsberg, 1945 in just two days because I found it so compelling. Isabel s excellent book proves that narrative history doesn t have to be populist, dumbed down or badly-researched. And she pulls no punches when it comes to the sheer bloody horror of what happened to the people of East Prussia once the tables had been turned and the Russians arrived with reprisals for Leningrad and Stalingrad uppermost in their minds --Secondary Education

A superb portrait of a forgotten but vital World War II battle of strategic importance and bestial savagery --Simon Sebag Montefiore --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

The author... uses personal accounts to explore the horror of the situation. (Journal for Intelligence, Propaganda and Security Studies)
