I found this book to be an excellant account of the battle of Berlin. It is very detailed and full of first person accounts. It ranges from the tactical to the operational in scope. It is a military viewpoint and deals very little with any depth from the civilian side. This is some of the best accounts of the battle I've read. I learned a lot of details not found in other books. I would recommend this book alongside The fall of Berlin by Antony Beevor and The last battle by Cornelius Ryan.
