Good as a recap, but not much more

would have liked more in depth analysis of themes presented in the book. This was mostly just a summary of what happened, with a few mentions of the nazis and Soviet at places in the book where tje connection is obvious

why every chapter twice?

I like the program but I don't get it why every single chapter has to be repeated twice?
