Editorial Reviews


"Fritz has found a way of taking further what in some other historians' hands might have been a conventional and limited study, and showing how it can enrich our understanding of Germany's defeat and its aftermath. This study suggests a new way of viewing both the military and nonmilitary experience of the end of World War."―American Historical Review

"This comprehensively researched book addresses a subject so timely that, were it not for the detailed research supporting his work, Fritz might be assumed to have written in the aftermath of the recent conquest and occupation of Iraq."―
Dennis Showalter, History Book Club

"Engrossing. . . . A substantial work of historical scholarship."―
International History Review

"Chillingly narrates the last desperate days of Nazi Germany, illustrating the terror and destruction of the last weeks of World War II."―
Jerry Cooper

"Convincingly challenges the accepted view that after the Allies crossed the Rhine in March 1945 the German army rapidly disintegrated and the war quickly wound down. . . . Pleasurable to read and definitely informative."―
Military Review

"This thoroughly researched and superbly written study illuminates the impact of Nazism on German resistance in the little known campaign in Franconia."―
WWII History --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
