This entry in the Images of War series looks at the German army of 1945, and in particular the German army on the Eastern Front. Most of the pictures that are given a geographical location were taken in the Baltic states, Poland or eastern Germany. The tone is a little odd, with something of a feel of contemporary German propaganda (lots of heroic defenders). I didn't spot any factual errors in the picture captions, and the identification of equipment looks correct.

Each photograph fully captures the tension, turmoil and tragedy of those last, terrible days of war as Wehmacht, Waffen SS, Luftwaffe, Hitlerjungend, Volkssturm and other units, some of which where comprised of barely trained conscripts, fought out their last battles. Exhausted and demoralized skeletal units must have been aware of the impending defeat.

While researching a novel or novella I came across the Images of War series. I ordered this one and the Hitler Youth book. Both are disappointing. The writing is weak and highly repetitive. They barely function as introductory primers to the subjects they cover. You may get some value from the photographs but I found the ones in Final Days of the Reich did not help tell the history.

Given the title you would think the Battle of Berlin would be dominate. However, it gets hardly any photographs and the scantest of analysis. I recommend Beevor or Ryan's excellent books on the fall of Berlin. I am shocked that this series was even published.

This book of photographs brings home to the viewer, the terrible conditions obtaining on the eastern front in WW2. The germans were in full retreat, the russians hard on their heels, defeat was staring Germany right in the face. Only Hitler in his self dillusions thought victory was still possible. The expressions on the faces on the german soldiers, say it all, they know their cause is facing defeat. The pixctures of the refugees are especially moving, for them the terror never ends. The thought of being taken prisoner by the russians haunts the german troops, and the civilians. It will all end in the rubble of the german capitol, Berlin. The crushing weight of their impending defeat can be seen on their faces, but they soldiered on, there reall was nothing else they could do. This book of photographs is well worth purchasing, just for its historical value alone. JRV

excellent footage rarely seen of March, April, May of 1945 depicting the utter devastation and some of those responsible for it. Without even a grain of plausible denial available to them, perpetrators nevertheless looked the other way when confronted with the undeniable evidence.

Everything was fine. Thanks.
Nothing personal
An interesting read. Didn't really learn much more than I knew already about the end of the Reich in Berlin but there were a few things that I wasn't aware of and these were presented in another format and style. All in all glad I bought this book.

Interesting book!

I enjoyed this by the fact,of at least then,all Germans felt ashamed just for being German. You have to be German to be a nazi but just because you are German does not mean you are a nazi. Yet everybody including Americans bleed the same color.... Seeing blood and the dark German uniforms in color brings it alive. Americans also spilled innocent German blood. Shame on humanity indeed. I agree with Captain Nemo.... Corey
Great photos I had not seen before
