5.0 out of 5 stars
very helpful and interesting book, 28 May 2013
This book is captivating. There are many lessons to take from it on a tactical point of view for gunners as well as infantry personnel. There are situations useful to describe the challenges of command and how his exemple founded his legitimacy, although he was a very young officer. Many lessons are still valid despite the fact that they are taken from such a particular front between Germany and USSR in WWII.The experiences of this officer are also so unique that you can read it almost like a novel. It is one of the best books describing the war experience of an artillery officer that I have ever read (among many).
