Return to Book Page. Dejair rated it it was ok Apr xaida, It’s like reading a box score focused on a game’s final minutes when one team had absolutely no chance of winning.
Superflat rated it it was ok Feb 15, He does an admirable job of making an interesting read out of a rather excruciatingly boring topic.

Vaden rated it it was ok Oct 02, I wouldn’t recommend it as there are much better things to read but if you are looking for a light read that covers a lot of ground go for it. Also it’s not really about Berlin and not even about the Nazis but instead about the Soviets. I got lost in the book.
