This review is from: The End: Hitler's Germany, 1944-45 (Allen Lane History) (Hardcover)
A lot of books have been written on the subject of the final months of the Third Reich. Kershaw's book tries to explain why the regime was able and willing to continue fighting in the face of overwhelming odds. The book is divided into 6 themes/ hypotheses that analyse the causes for continuing the war. The book is well writted and researched, the book analyses Third Reich politics, policy, military strategy and social aspect to expalin the determination to continue fighting. The content is well balanced and provided interesting insights into the mindset of the key figures of the regime.
Well worth a read.
