Shelves: nazi-germany
Ultimately a very solid, well-researched book. The work is truly ground-breaking, in that it pushes the debate past arguing whether German atrocities during the invasion of Belgium actually happened. Establishing clearly that they did, the discussion shifts now to explanations of why.

That said, the book is a dry read. The sheer volume of evidence the authors provide is convincing, but can make the book a drudge to read.
