“Because of the author has included an immense amount of background information with each of the six tours, this book is not only a “tour guide” but a concise history of the battles along the Oder front. The included armor images also made this book a very enjoyable read. Highly Recommended .”


"The final weeks of the war were fought courageously by the Germans, some as young as 12, to the bitter end, without reservation or qualification, and author McCormack captures well their confused intent but utter resoluteness."
