Excellent read. The author compiles accounts from every country and predicament, there are accounts from prisoners of war, civilians, famous nazis, famous allies, regular Germans, Wehrmacht, the soviets, the list goes on. It is written like a series of stories that are all tied together by the impending end of the most destructive war ever waged. It also perpetuates the feeling of desperation and hopelessness of many of the prominent Nazi figures and German non-combattants in light of the impending Soviet occupation.

Very well written from a unique group of perspectives of the last five days of WWII in Europe. Includes the experiences of future reporters, writers, politicans. Amazing that so much happened at the end of 6 years of global war in just five days.
