Philip Gibsonabout this book: The Final days of Hitler's Third Reich told in the form of Twitter feeds from the main participants. The story runs from the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt to the Battle of Berlin and the death of Hitler.
This is a unique and experimental form of presenting a historical subject and is uniquely suited to events in which several interweaving themes are occurring within small time periods.
The book is fictional in that the tweets are imaginary having been composed by the author, but factual in that the information contained within the tweets accurately reflects what that participant knew at that time and place and could have believably reported.
Here's how the book was described by Howard Polskin, Editor-in-Chief of Thin Reads (Weighty content that's not too long):
• One of the most imaginative e-book singles of the year. #Berlin45 packs a powerful wallop and engages thoroughly, picking up in intensity as the story moves into the final, frantic days of the Third Reich with tweets from a wide assortment of Hitler's inner circle ... It's a brilliant history lesson that drives the narrative forward to a tense conclusion ... The author based most of his tweets on actual comments made by the main historical figures, and appears to have created a brilliant new franchise!
