Max Hastings at his best combines trenchant opinions insight and a very engaging style to produce a masterful workThe story of the last few months of the second world war in Europe is one which is relatively unknown save from a few high profile episodes such as Arnhem and the Battle of the Bulge in Britain The hunger winter of the Netherlands the rape of East Prussia the savage fighting on the German frontier in areas such as the Hurtgen Forest and even the Battle of Berlin have been shamefully neglected in this country with the result that few realise just how savage the final few months of the war were Whenever reading about the tragedy of Market GardenArnhem it is bizarre to think that the battle took place a month after the slaughter of Falaise when it seemed that the German army in the West had been smashed and that the war was almost overThe story is a series of episodes and moves around So it moves between the Western and Eastern fronts considers the final months of the strategic bombing offensive the tragic fate of prisoners of the Nazis and the German home front Whilst the book gives due attention to the better known episodes such as the Battle of the Bulge Warsaw uprising and the fall of Berlin I suspect many British readers will discover a great deal about battles such as the Hurtgen Forest and the fighting on the Oder and Vistula Many British readers may be surprised to learn that Montgomery made perhaps the singularly greatest blunder of the war in Europe post D Day in his failure to clear the Scheldte estuary and so open up the Port of Antwerp The book considers many of the great personalities of the war whilst Montgomery is presented as you might expect an insufferably vain self serving and plodding general who was nevertheless highly competent when commanding set piece battles it may surprise readers to see that Patton was far from the great genius sometimes portrayed Whilst the book shows Patton had flair and aggression in pursuit and manoeuvre it presents him as unimaginative and far from great when forced to fight attritional battles whilst the taskforce Baum incident was shocking Hastings view of Eisenhower is rather conventional far from a great strategist but a masterful diplomat who deserved the appreciation of history for being able to hold a coalition which was nothing like as amicable as often presented togetherOf the political figures one figure overshadows all of the others in this book and that is Stalin Hastings paints a picture of an incredibly vile ruthless and evil man who was nevertheless a masterful political strategistThe story of fighting men is an interesting one Hastings may appear less than flattering about British and American soldiers yet his opinions are not unfair and he makes the valid point that in many ways the less flattering aspects of Western troops was the flip side of the very reasons the Western Allies came out of the war with a much cleaner record than the German or Soviet Armies The German and Soviet armies are presented as being far superior in many martial aspects but at a cost of brutality and moral debasement If Hastings is less than flattering about British and American troops he is scathing in his observations of the brutality of German and Soviet troops and their commanders and the managed indiscipline and drunkenness of the Red ArmyHastings devotes a lot of space to the tragedy suffered by the German people particularly in East Prussia and is clearly and rightly sympathetic to their pain and suffering whilst also avoiding the trap of euating this with the truly heinous policies of Germany towards their conuered territory in the East and those not deemed worthy of life by the Nazis To be sympathetic to the suffering of German civilians is not the same as absolving Germany of responsibility for that suffering and Hastings navigates a moral minefield very effectivelyOverall the book highlights just what a tragedy the final few months of the war were the suffering of those few months was dreadful This is a book which deserves to be read widely superbHastings does not back away from offering judgements and it is the trenchant nature of his observations which makes the book so refreshing in many ways
