This book is a collection of stories, six of them, by German combat veterans who fought on the Eastern Front. Unfortunately there are many better first person books relating the authors' experiences on the Eastern Front. I will list a few below.
The first story by Ernst Panse is a shortened version of his earlier book, which was very short to start with, covering his experiences from November, 1942 to his surrender at Stalingrad. This is an excellent story, but leaves the reader wanting more.
The second story is by Joacchim Stempel that makes up the bulk of the book but is often nothing more than directives and Wehrmacht communiques. This was simply not in the spirit of the book.
Chapter Three written by Albert Liesegang was too short (4 pages) to do much of anything.
Chapter Four was the best of the bunch and told the story (by Alfred Regeniter) of his combat experiences during the death throes of Army Group North in Lithuania and East Prussia. The author was an assault gun commander, and his view of the battles was captivating.
Chapter Five was a composite by Gerd Doehler and Hans Kamradek fighting along the upper Oder in Poland/Silesia. This was moderately interesting, but difficult to follow.
The last chapter by Guenther Meyer, named as "Surviving the Russian Offensive at the Seeloewer Heights", was only six and a half pages long and covered very little combat.
Pass this one up. Read instead:
Allenberger; "Sniper On The Eastern Front"
Carius; "Tigers In The Mud"
Sajer; "The Forgotten Soldier"
Koschorrek; "Blood Red Snow"
Zieser; "The Road To Stalingrad"
If you are still hungry after this feast, read the Stackpole books, "Infantry Aces" and "Panzer Aces", Volumes I and II.
