A Very Good Book By An Excellent Author!
Why David L. Robbins isn't better known is a mystery to me. His abilty to create interesting, thought-provoking, well-researched historical fiction with multi-dimsensional characters is excellent. In The End Of War, the story of the race for Berlin during the close of WWII, Robbins makes you feel that you are right there in the thick of things -- in the meeting rooms with FDR, Churchill and Stalin, in the battle fields with two Russian soldiers -- Ilya and Mischa with Charles Bandy -- a Life magazine photographer -- as he takes photos that shock people about the horrors of war, and in the apartment with Lotti and her mother as they do what is necessary to survive in war-torn Berlin, including hiding a Jewish man in their basement from the Nazis and Russians. The End of War is actually four well-told stories, with some being better than others. While The End Of War had less action and wasn't as fast-paced as I anticipated, I was in no way disappointed with it. If you a reader that enjoys historical fiction or of a well-written book in general, I think you will enjoy The End Of War.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
