3.0 out of 5 stars A 5-star book marred by bad editing, 27 Nov. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Armageddon: The Battle for Germany 1944-45 (Hardcover)
This gives a riveting account of the last year of World War II in Europe. Combining 'macro' accounts of the main battles with comments and experiences of the participants both high-ranking and humble, Hastings has brilliantly melded his dual talents as journalist and historian. Sadly his book is tarnished by inexcusably poor editing, the pages being littered with typographical errors. One has the impression that it may not have been proofread at all. The all-important maps appear to have been dredged up from somewhere because they were available rather than being closely linked to the text - frequently, important place names discussed in the text are not to be found at all, on the maps.

Agreed. The maps are very poor.
Apart from that, a very good book.
