    Default Various books by German Historian, Ralf Blank

    I have been going through some of the books by German Historian, Ralf Blank. In my opinion, these are very important contributions to the history of the airwar over the Ruhr that I have seen. Some very well researched history of the effects of the bombing and the political events and the police state on the ground. Some great photos of the damage to some of the Ruhr towns, particularly the synthetic oil plants. I really hope that he goes through with editions of these books in English.

    The books are

    “Bitter Ends” Das letzte halbe Jahr des Zweiten Weltkriegs im Ruhrgebiet 1944/45
    "Hilflos steht man vor all dem Grauen” Tagebücher aus der Kriegs- und Nachkriegszeit 1943 – 1948
    Ruhrschlacht Das Ruhrgebiet im Kriegsjahr 1943

    Never heard about these books to be honest. Are you sure that there is no translation into English of these books? I have a friend who is living in his Berlin property and I will try to ask him if there any information about translation. I would be really interested to read to be honest.
