This is an amazing book of accounts written, with one exception, by members of the small percentage of German soldiers who emerged relatively unscathed from the final battle for Berlin in 1945. Their stories sometimes seem to show unbelievable luck, until one realises that most of their comrades were not so lucky and were killed; a few survived and these are their stories.
As stated in the other revues, Willi Rogmann's account seems incredible. Yet he received medals for actions which were equally incredible and were fully documented. Writing as someone who spent 11 years in Germany and therefore has some understanding of the German psyche and social interactions, I believe Rogmann's story. The description is heavily flavoured by his opinions, of course, but it's clear that he was a uniquely positive-minded individual who simply never gave up trying 100% when most of us would have decided enough was enough. That saw him through where a great many others didn't make it.
It would make a heck of a film!
