Good soldier yes dilusional nazi yes they all claim to fight for love of the fatherland in reality they fought and died for hitler to pillage and enslave the world and any high ranking officer who claims to not know what was happening is a liar or a fool
Excellent reading!highly recommended if you are into the life and times of Kurt Meyer. Book covers from his first battles in Poland,his years on the Eastern Front battling the Russian Army to his days on the western Front ,to his capture and imprisoment in England and release after being imprisoned for 10 years. One interesting note is how historians have somewhat twisted stories which came out of WW2 as only the Germans and our enemies being the "Bad Guys".When in fact Americans and its Allies were just as corrupt and evil as anyone else!! The only thing I wish Stackpole would have done to this book is found more pictures for each chapter. Anyways,another EXCELLENT publication by Stackpole Books!
