It is not a waste of time to read this as I learned a lot of details about the Eastern Front but I think that it wasn’t time well spent.

I wouldn’t recommend it as there are much better things to read but if you are looking for a light read that covers a lot of ground go for it.

La memoria colectiva que es la historia se nos aparece hoy mucho menos como el mero relato de lo caidda en el czida que como un instrumento de analisis del presente.

But it can be read like a …more No, it is not a novel. Dan Capone rated it it was ok Jun 13, The clumsiness of the Soviets, berljn megalomania of Stalin, the naivety of the Americans, the irrelevance of the British, all play out against the pathetic condition of the German people.

Open Preview See a Problem? Is this book a novel?? An aspect that troubled me in particular is that Beevor presents as fact, eyewitness accounts that I know are questioned by serious historians.

Also it’s not really about Berlin and not even about the Nazis but instead about the Soviets. David Haimerl rated it it was ok Jan 12, BerlinGermany. I got lost in the book. Refresh and try again.

Con riguorsas tecnicas documentales semejantes a las empleadas en Stalingrado pero con mayor aliento epico y mas densidad politica, Beevor describe tanto la complejidad de las grandes operaciones militares y la logica de las decisiones de sus mandos como los sentimientos de la gente comun atrapada en un torbellino de fuego y metralla.
