Nigel Thomas, illustration by Stephen Andrew. ISBN 1-85532-796-1. Osprey Books, 1999.
Covers the period marking the slow retreat of Germany and its allies to eventual defeat in Berlin. I found the photos of late war units, especially the volksturm, with their mix of outdated and ultra modern (according to the period) uniforms and equipment most interesting.
Again you know what to expect with Osprey publications, it's like fast food research, it does the job but never quite manages to fill you up.
