Frank E. Manuel was a 34-year-old intelligence officer during the final American push into Germany in April 1945. This memoir recounts those last frantic weeks of the war, conveying the essence of the time through a montage produced from transcripts, letters, and memory. Manuel's take on the collapse of the Third Reich, and the Americans' part in it, is decidedly unheroic and unsentimental. He portrays a shattered Europe where the black market rules and an entire population is in transit; where former Nazi sympathizers are desperate to cover their tracks; where Americans rush to judgment; and where the prospect of a Russian takeover looms. "Military historians have assembled a picture of the grand design, creating the myth of an official history, but fragments may be closer to the chaos of experience in war." - from the book
