The second part of the book, set in Siberia and Germany is not as detailed as the first part, but this would have made the work of epic proportions, so whilst not necessarily as satisfying as the first part it delivers what needs to be said to set the scene for the later parts.
The real importance of this book is the attempt to address the role and feelings of ordinary Germans and serving soldiers during this time and these events. The book shows how this is not an easy thing to talk about... innocence is lost when someone has to face facts about their beloved parents and grandparents and the anger and guilt can spill into the next generation. The story tries bravely to address this.
