    I have just began reading this book The Last 100 Days written by John Toland. This is an account of the last few months before the germans lost the war. Some people interviewed and or there is alot of information about in this book are:
    Ss Gruppenfuhrer Erich von den Bach-Zelewski
    General Hermann Bach
    General Fritz Bayerlein
    SS Obergruppenfuhrer Gottlob Berger
    General Ernst Biehler
    General Johannes Blaskowitz
    General Gunther Blumentritt
    General Franz ritter von Epp
    General Heinz Guderian
    General Otto Hitzfeld
    GFM Wilhelm Keitel
    SS Brigadefuhrer Heinz Lammerding
    General Hasso Von Manteuffel
    SS Brigadefuhrer Wilhelm Mohnke
    General Otto Remer
    Colonel Hans-Josef Rudel
    GFM Ferdinand Schorner
    SS Obersturmbannfuhrer Otto Skorzeny
    SS Obergruppenfuhrer Felix Steiner
    General Hellmuth Weidling
    Generaql Walther Wenck

    an impressive list. I would suggest reading this book if you get the chance!

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    It is a great book. You also get glimpses of the childish "fighting" that went on between some generals. You also get a sense of being there, like an observer. Thats how well written that this book is.

    The book came out in the late 50's or early 60's. It is comprises of many interviews with many military and political figures. A very notable interviewee, is Col, General Gotthard Heinrici, who was shifted from his position to command troops near Berlin.

    This book is a MUST READ, if you want to know more on what happened this is an excellent book to read.

    I agree with you evens, I found out much I never realized before. My favorite parts were when it was talking about what Gotthard Heinrici did as a defensive general. It also told great stuff on the battles of Seelowe Heights.
