Was really excited when i saw this book on amazon. I found the book really disappointing with very few in depth battles and the story seemed to drag along and found i had to force myself to carry on reading. Good all round story that never reached it's full potential. Authors's other books i have read were quite good. If you are looking for a simillar story about Himmler taking charge of germany in July 1944 try Fox on The Rhine by Douglas Nileson and Michael Dobson and the sequel Fox at the FRont both outstanding books. Avoid Himmler's War you will be disappointed as i was.
