    The Missing Final Chapter Of World War II

    The Missing Final Chapter Of World War II

    The Missing Final Chapter Of World War II
    Endgame, 1945 by David Stafford is a well-researched account of the last month of World War II. Stafford concentrates on nine individuals: soldiers, war correspondents, POWs, men, and women. The text begins with Hitler's birthday, April 20, 1945.
    Endgame, 1945 captured my attention from the first page. The events came to life as I read of the atrocious events. David Stafford tells the story through the lives of nine individuals: Soldiers, such as: Robert Ellis from Wooster, Ohio and Lieutenant Bryan Samian, a young British Commando, and prisoners. Twenty-six year old Fey von Hassel was an ambassador's daughter imprisoned by the Germans for her father's sentiments. Then, there were the war correspondents, like Robert Reid.
    This was not a pleasant read. Stafford's descriptions are so vivid I could see them taking place in my mind's eye. In one chapter, he tells of a woman, hair covered in lice, protruding ribs, so weak that she could not lift herself off the floor as diarrhea bubbled up across her thighs. Stafford describes the Concentration Camps. He includes photographs. Among the photos are Reg Roy, Robert Ellis, Bryan Samain, Fey von Hassel, and Robert Reid. While this book is not for the faint of heart, it tells of an event that should never be forgotten.

    Highly recommended

    Almost all this history of WWII in the three weeks between cessation of hostilities and formal surrender comes from actual participants or eyewitnesses. Vivid details of bravery and cowardice, savagery and saintliness, the best and worst of the human animal in all classes of society

    Days in the life of stuff

    The book follows the lives of various people starting just before VE Day and continues for a short time after VE Day. It is an interesting story. I am glad I read it but, I prefer reading more about the events of World War II as opposed to the day to day lives of people who were in it.

    Absorbing - History As It Has Never Been Told Before

    This gripping account of the final days of World War II is a spell binding masterpiece. The author helps the lay reader understand the terrible destruction that a mad man brought upon us all.
