Customer Review

on 16 August 2013
A comprehensively detailed account of the final stages of the Second World War from the perspective of the German side. I found the questions raised in the introduction to be answered as to why Germany continued to fight when the War was so clearly lost. The only issue which could have been dealt with using a bit more analysis was how a system of terror was able to withstand any internal opposition. After the attempted putsch in July 1944, the Nazi leadership seem to be impregnable despite near panic when Aachen was almost taken in September by the Americans, and the continued disaster in the East. Some earlier criticisms have been that the book has added nothing essentially new to what is already known, and this may have been a sign of that, despite a detailed commentary. Nevertheless, a complex, but clearly written book by an eminent historian.
