Anticlimactic end to what should have been two books

***spoilers***
I was really looking forward to finishing this trilogy and it seems so was the author. The war basically wraps up about a third of the way in with "hey we have an H bomb!" "Lets kill Stalin with it" and then they do. In about that level of detail, description, and excitement.

The next eleven hours drones on about minor skirmishes and how all the characters get back to their old lives which includes a cringeworthy graphic description of a young widow having sex with a senior citizen.

Save your credits/$$$ and skip this book.
