Overview

  • Acutely observed firsthand account of combat on the Eastern Front
  • Glimpse into the mindset of the average German soldier
  • Covers Stalingrad and other battles

Erich Stahl was a professional journalist assigned to cover some of the most famous of these units--the 1st SS Panzer Division "Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler," the 5th SS Panzer Division "Wiking," and the Dutch and Ukrainian volunteers serving with the SS--but with a twist: he actually pulled duty as a soldier in the front lines, where he experienced all the hardships, privations, and gut-wrenching emotions of the men who fought the Soviets.
