This new addition covers the final battles in the West to the German surrender and VE Day. – Very Highly Recommended. The Battle of the Bulge has received much attention from historians, as has the Battle for Arnhem. Around these two major engagements, there has been remarkably little coverage of all of the other engagements and the crossing of the Rhine. The Rhine Crossing was a major event that included large scale drops and landings of airborne troops. The Germans continued to put up fierce resistance even though they knew the war was lost and surrender in the West was preferable to surrender in the East. The image selection conveys the range of emotions. There are exhausted and beaten German soldiers, civilians amongst the wreckage, Vengeance Weapons, shattered tanks, civilians force to view a capture forced labour camp. Victorious troops, inspecting their trophies, contrast with utter destruction. All of this supported by concise text in the form of introductions, extended captions and captions. Another fast seller for a great series.
