Unfortunately I barely started this book when I could no longer finish the book.
Granted, Manstein was a complex and controversial Field Marshall of major magnitude but he deserves more hindsight based on directly relatable evidence.
that his actions were based on, rather than the rather broad-dased opinions of the author. This is not work by a worthy historian but the pre-conceived dreams of a francophile.
Manstein was found guilty of war crimes for actions that took place in his area of responsibility and since he was the 'captain of the ship' his sentence was fair. But to attribute all of the author's opinions to the taint of national socialism is a 'bridge too far'.
