Title: "To the Bitter End" Author: Rolf Hinze Pub.: Helion I picked up this book earlier this year through Military Book Club to have a reference for the later Ostfront actions of WWII from the German perspective. Subtitled, "The Final Battles of Army Groups North Ukraine, A, and Center--Ostfront 1944-45", the book is very well-written and well-researched. It does read a bit dryly at times, but fortunately there is some anecdotal information to go with the dry facts. I was hoping to find more info in here on the tragedy of the Oder Pocket, but came up a bit wanting. Festung Breslau is covered, however. The Russian action is also detailed in good scholarly fashion. This book has German situation/battle maps and a light scattering of effective illustrations. There is no index, which I found frustrating, if one needs to cross-refer for research especially. I'd recommend this book for the WWII German Ostfront student as an interesting reference for the last battles.
