  • Kershaw's 'The End'

    Has anyone read Ian Kershaw's The End: The Defiance and Destruction of Hitler's Germany, 1944-1945? Is it worth a look?

    I checked it out from my local library a few weeks back and read about 20 pages or so but I couldn't get into it.

      I've had it for a few days now and have yet to crack it. I'm hoping to give it a try here soon. Was it just too dry, or were you just not into it?

        Anybody read his bio of Hitler? I've had an eye on it for some time now.

          I found his writing style dry and difficult to read.

          Just my opinion though.

            I've read Kershaw's 'Nemesis' and thought it was pretty good. I liked Toland's biography on him better. I agree with Captain General, Kershaw can be dry at times.

              Yes , this is one of those ' hard to read ' books......... but hard to read due to the subject matter ,rather than anything else, i think.

              SF.

                Still plan to give it a shot. I'm constantly reading about 4 or 5 books at a time, but I'm trying to narrow that down.

                Once I finish Chernow's book on George Washington, I think I'll delve into 'The End.'
