This book barely scratches at the surfice of the battle of koenigsburg and prussia in general. Most of this book is a history of germany, the rize of nazism, and history of world war 2 as a whole... maybe the last 75 pages actually talk about prussia and koenigsberg. Not worth the read. Check out battleground prussia for a more indepth look at this over looked part of the war!
