This book started out with a good idea and then seemed to drag it to death. The heroes were overly heroic while the villains were idiotically evil. Also there were so many inaccuracies in the descriptions of equipment that I became irritated. Keys in a jeep? 20mm BAR? M14s used in Europe in 1946? Yenne could have used a proof reader. The battle descriptions were rare and became shorter and shorter while the personal stories became longer and longer. I also wondered why the Germans didn't figure in the battle with the Soviets more. Likely that was accurate but I still wondered why. It was an okay story but not a keeper.

From an amateur historian comes this novel of alternate history which explores what might have happened if General George S. Patton had gotten his way with the Soviets in 1945.
