Mr Verton gives a very graphic picture of war. It shows how cruel and cheap life can be. I think he has difficulty in accepting that the ss were also perpetrators in a lot of atrocities and his unit may be free of guilt but cannot completely ignore his fellow men. However a. Crime which has remained fairly well unknown has been the treatment of german POWs after the war and also the Prussian people who were treated appallingly after the war.
History is always written by the victors.
