5.0 out of 5 stars The story of a German Soldier in WW2 25 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A truly remarkable book. The author tells of his life as a German soldier and the rigors and hardships of war. Insightfull to compare the war from the German perspective, and to understand their viewpoint of events.
I would have to say the best book I have ever read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soldat: Reflections of a German Soldier 15 Mar 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is all about the life and combat career of Siegfried Knappe during the 1930's and 40's - an interesting period in history, to say the least. Knappe reflects in great detail on an almost day-to-day basis on his experiences in the Wehrmacht across the main fronts of the 2nd world war including france 1940, russia 1941-1943, france 1944, berlin 1945.

His writing references his feelings at the time, his comrades and the many different peoples that he encounters on this epic journey of combat and personal discovery across the european continent at war.

A great read, which may come across as being close to fantasy at times - due to the extreme conditions that Mr Knappe was to endure and experience.
An insight into the life of a German soldier, a topic all too often and unfairly dismissed by the western allies after the 2nd world war.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soldat 25 Dec 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Extremely detailed, the author displays an enormous memory of personnel and individual battles on the Russian front and finally the defence and fall of Berlin to the Russians. Enthralling reading but hard work.
