My expectations were not met - The Nazi thing has been done to death - We know how bad they were - We actually were in Auschwitz and saw the places in the book and it was very moving to be there. However the day to day accounting of the book was a bit tedious. We were aware of the camps history and its original purpose of holding and eliminating Poles. For the novice that may be new but otherwise there was nothing especially revealing in the book. But then, it was never intended to be a novel - just a military report.
