Slagtebænk Dybbøl, som de danske soldater selv kaldte slagmarken de skulle forsvare den 18. april 1864, handler selvfølgelig om selve det blodige slag mellem Danmark og de to tyske stormagter Prøjsen og Østrig, hvor de kæmper om storhertugdømmerne Slesvig, Holsten og Lauenborg, men også om starten på Røde Kors, den uduelighed der herskede blandt de danske politikere og om forgangne slag - der giver en dyrbar forståelse for dette tabte slag.

Tom Buk-Swienty har skrevet en dokumentarisk beretning,

This visceral account of a little known conflict is everything you could want from a non-fiction historical book, retelling the events through the letters and diaries of those who took part.
Although the author is Danish there is no bias in the writing, drawing from both Danish and Prussian sources, as well as foreign volunteers, war correspondents and Red Cross observers.
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the warfare and politics of the 19th Century and beyond into the early 20t

Norwegian version (360 pages). Reminds me a bit of "Poltava" from Peter Englund. A battles detailed description from both the german and the dansih point-of-view. Interesting for some people, but I can understand that some readers would find it too bloody.

Nu har jeg været med til slaget om Dybbøl. Og det er bogens rigtige fortjeneste, at den tager dig med, svævende over vandende, ned i skyttegraven og bag beslutningstagerenes borde. Imponerende research og dækket helt ind fra alle kanter.

Til tider springer den meget, nævner mange navne og gentager sig selv meget - med folk der får revet kæber af og dør alle steder. Det må også have været svært at skære fra efter al læsningen, men det havde i mine øjne klædt bogen med en mindre slankekur, og måsk

I think the interest level of this historical book was very very varied. Some chapters had me totally captured, while others bore me to enough to skip them. At the end it was very emotional and I accentually didn't want to read the last 50 pages before going to bed because it was so grim. And there were passages I skipped because they were to graphic.
Some chapters had a great deal of interesting historical materials - such as heart crossing letters from and to the soldiers. Other chapters - lik

Anmeldelse sammen med Dommedag Als
Jacob Thomsen
Den virker velresearchede og dokumenteret, men jeg synes jeg mangle Nogle detaljer ,der ikke så meget teknisk mht til Våben etc. Hvis der er skrevet 3000 bøger mm om krigen synes jeg godt man kunne gå lidt dybere ned, det virker nogle gange meget overfladisk. Ud over det, spændene læsning
Thea Juhl Thorup
Jeg kan godt lide den. Den er velskrevet og researchet grundigt. Der kunne måske være lidt flere illustrationer men ellers nyder jeg den. Og jeg bryder mig normalt ikke om noget med krig..
Jens Hansen
Hvis man kender den ældre litteratur om emnet, så er denne bog bare et opkog, og derfor smager den også som en genopvarmet middag.

Velskrevet og grundig.
