    The writings will take you to the eartenr front...

    There are countless volumes written about the history of WWII from technical aspects, strategy, why one side did something and why the other side reacted the way they did. In the many years of reading about WWII I have never been taken into the mindset of the individual German soldier as this book takes the is though you are setting with the author as he speaks to you directly in conversation, sharing from his inner self about what it's like to 'feel' being there beside him in times of the hardships, survival, suffering, dispair, moments of relief, how a clump of moldy bread can bring such happiness, and what the average German soldier on the eastern front had to endure. Simply incredible reading! Only those who have 'been there' know of such matters and feelings - this book will help take you there. You will step into this book as you absorb its content, to transcend as it absorbs you as well, it's as close as you'd ever get to being on the eastern front. As fine a read of the individual German soldier on the eastern front as you'll ever find. There is nothing nice about war, wherever it may be. Take your tour of duty with the author as he shares from within, you will certainly not regret adding this volume to your library.

    ALSO: read the review for the paper back volume

    Very well written. Follow along with a German soldier on the eastern front, it will take you there alongside of him in his tour of duty. Not often shall you find such a superb accounting of the life of an ordinary soldier during the hardships of war, and enduring challanges of survival. After you start reading this book, you'll find it most difficult to set it down until the last page has been read! It will leave a lasting impression on you thereafter...

    German soldier on the eastern front

    An intensely interesting enlisted man's war story told by the man who lived it. A soldier drafted into a war, caught between the Nazi's who were ready to kill him on the one hand, and the enemy who was trying to kill him on the other, with brutal weather relentlessly tearing him down, he fights Russians and Nazi's to survive. He fights for his life, and the lives of the men he is serving with, but not for the Fuehrer. I thought I knew a lot about WWII, but I learned a lot more reading this book from a man that paints no rosey pictures -- he tells it like it was. If you liked 'Band Of Brothers' by S. Ambrose you will enjoy this book about their German counter parts.
