The Last Panther
- Slaughter of the Reich - The Halbe Kessel 1945
- By: Wolfgang Faust
- Narrated by: George Backman
- Length: 5 hrs and 15 mins
While the Battle of Berlin in 1945 is widely known, the horrific story of the Halbe Kessel remains largely untold. In April 1945, victorious Soviet forces encircled 80,000 men of the German 9th Army in the Halbe area, South of Berlin, together with many thousands of German women and children. The German troops, desperate to avoid Soviet capture, battled furiously to break out toward the West, where they could surrender to the comparative safety of the Americans.
Fake Memoir - Literary Fraud - Violent War Porn

Fictional account implicitly marketed as fact
Not worth a credit or hard cash. This is a fictional story. It's not a memoir of a panther veteran. There was no Wolfgang Faust. Google this book title or the "author" and you'll get all the inglorious details. It would have been okay if it was marketed for what it is - a work of fiction. I feel ripped off.

Blind Descent explores both the brightest and darkest aspects of the timeless human urge to discover—to be first. It is also a thrilling epic about a pursuit that makes even extreme mountaineering and ocean exploration pale by comparison.

Receptively verbose. The unashamed hero worship of Bill Stone was laughable. Listen to it if you're bored. But never attempt it if you find yourself alone and trapped in a cave 🙂
