|I am interested in finding a great book that covers what it was like in occupied Germany while the Allies pushed towards Berlin. I want to read not only about the military side of the story but what the German civilian opposition was like, how the Germans were treated by the Allies, etc. |
Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

|"The Other Side of Time, A Combat Surgeon in World War II" by Brendon Phibbs covers some of this material. The book should rank very high in a list of WW II books. One of ten best I have read (out of hundreds of military books). Pocket Books, ISBN 0-671-66574-X |
I have notes from more than 225 on my website, with about 75 nearly ready to post. Primary subject is 'ESP in Combat' with many more items included.

|The memoir 'Roll me Over' by Raymond Gantter (16th RCT, 1st Div) has a lot on civilians - he could speak some German. He kept a pretty good diary and edited/added to it shortly after the war. He describes many civilians that he encountered. It's also the best combat memoir from the ETO as well, in my opinion. |
