    From the preeminent Hitler biographer, a fascinating and original exploration of how the Third Reich was willing and able to fight to the bitter end of World War II. Countless books have been written about why Nazi Germany lost World War II, yet remarkably little attention has been paid to the equally vital question of how and why it was able to hold out as long as it did.

    Liz says: "Engrossing yet horrifying"
    "Bloated and Repetitive"

    Would you recommend The End to your friends? Why or why not?

    No

    I have read many world war 2 histories and I usually don't purchase the new ones anymore as most of what can be written has already been said many times by other authors. With that in mind, I purchased The End as this book does focus on the final end of the third Reich and looks at that aspect of the war with a new angle.

    The problem is that there just isn't enough new insight to justify the huge length of this book. The author repeats his central thesis over and over again into tedium. I was very pleased when the book was finally over so that I could go on to listen to something else. Everything that was needed to be said in the book could have been done effectively with half the length or less.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Pratt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrator is not the issue here


    Was The End worth the listening time?

    No, far too long
