German war memoirs are not as numerous as those by allied soldiers,therefore any book by an axis soldier is worth reading.The novelty factor alone makes them interesting, but if anyone has a serious interest in military history then a book such as this will prove fascinating.German memoirs tend not to be as readable as others due to the translation and also as they tend not to put you in the thick of action.(no muck & bullets)
Examples of this would be the works of H Guderian and H von Luck.This book is however more like 'Grenadiers' by K Meyer (a must buy!)which although not as graphic as the works of former 'screaming eagle' D Burgett still convey the real life war experience of a common Landser.
The reader will be astonished at the amount of combat the average german soldier saw,also one can get a real insight into the mind of a wehrmact soldier,the tactics and skills of the german forces and also a different perspective on the german soldiers relationship with the soviet peoples they conquored.
It would be a bargain at full price,at the discounted rate you can't not buy it.
If you only buy one german memoir and don't want to spend as much as 'Grenadiers' then pop this one in your basket.
