This book graphically shows the exhaustion and resignation of the soldiers who realized that they were fighting on past defeat in the most pointless form of combat – Highly Recommended The final months of WWII saw the Germans being forced back into their national boundaries with no sign that the Allies would stop until they occupied all of Germany. What the Germans did not realize was that the Allies had already agreed to accept only unconditional surrender by Germany. In the West the German commanders increasingly saw their task as falling back slowly in the West but fighting for every inch in the East in the happy false belief that the Western Allies would joint them in fighting the Soviets, once the Nazis were removed from command. There is capable text and excellent captioning of the many rare photographs. A picture may equal a thousand words, but this book contains in its images the descent into chaos for the German people. The level of destruction, affect on civilians and the stress on the soldiers leaps from the pages.
