The Fatal Decisions - William Richardson,  Seymour Freiden,  Siegfried Westphal,  Werner Kreipe,  Günther Blumentritt,  Fritz Bayerlein,  Kurt Zeitzler,  Bodo Zimmerman,  Hasso-Eccard Freiherr von Manteuffel,  S.L.A. Marshall,  Constantine Fitzgibbon This book was given to me by a schoolmate when I was 12 years old. It was an unexpected, though much appreciated, surprise.

"The Fatal Decisions" is made up of the inside stories of 6 German military officers (told in their own words) who played a part in 6 vital Second World War battles in Europe spanning the years 1940 to 1944-45. For the 12-year old me, this was heady stuff.
