Hi. I am writing a fictional book on the battle for Berlin and how one soldier never gave up and how his life touched so many other German lives. It is entitled The Last Soldier. Some of my story takes lace in the Berlin flak tower. Any info you can send during and after the battle would be appreciated. Thank you. Richard and Gretchen.
