  • Bought a used copy in a Philadelphia bookstore. Excellent book! Different slant on WWII eye witness accounts from Germans. Describes what the Germans endured as the Russians pushed west in 1944/1945. Some of the eye witness acounts are sickening. History must be studied from all sides to get an objective view. This book is a glimpse of WWII history that is not often shared.


  • Very interesting - It covers an aspect seldom written about and gives a vivid picture of what happened to civilians in the area.
