The End: The Defiance and Destruction of Hitler's Germany, 1944-1945

The End: The Defiance & Destruction of Hitler's Germany 1944-45 - Ian Kershaw A solid book of the history of the final year of World War II Europe with the focus completely on the German power structure. I learned a lot from the read, but really felt as though this book could have been written at half the length. It very much seemed that the story would repeat itself every chapter where the Germans suffered losses, some people wanted to give in, Hitler and the Nazi powers would not allow it, they killed all who opposed them, then they would again suffer losses. It was much too detailed for a popular history, but I am certainly better off for having read the book.
