Is there any good books or info on that time period and area? I want to learn more about the troops at Seelow, and then what happened to those units from seelow, and who retreated into and thru Halbe etc.
i have seen some on both but nothing that details the whole picture in a concise order.

But a better book is Panther-Abteilung Brandenburg 1945. This has a lot of detail on the fighting on the oder in feb/mar/April with real oder photos, first person accounts, data. Then there's a chapter devoted to the Halbe Breakout, with some genuine photos from that journey, which are soo rare, and great maps.
Both are expensive, but if you can get 1, get the Brandenburg.

You can also check out these two books:
Berlin Dance of Death by Helmut Altner, 2002. 248 pages 12 maps.
With our backs to Berlin by Tony Le Tissier, 2001. 215 pages 13 maps.
Both of these are a good read.
