5.0 out of 5 stars Fasten your safety belts for this one..., 23 Nov. 2014
This is a fantastic collection of personal accounts in which the Editor has cleverly sifted through numerous examples and extracted the cream. Each one is gripping in its different way and you feel as if you are standing right next to the soldier through his ordeal. Each account is detailed enough to draw you in but not too long to become boring.

Its hard to beat the material although its very hard for some to describe what clearly is indescribable, for example, one account describes the last 2 days in Stalingrad as "hell" and leaves it as that, a word much too commonly used nowadays which seems to have lost its true meaning.

For me the most haunting accounts were from the injured waiting at the 2 runways for evacuation, and how close some came to getting out but then were captured.

Being picky, the maps leave a bit to be desired - I would have liked an individual map of the location of each soldier with also the photo, rather than being a collection in the middle in no particular order.

This is knife edge stuff. If it was fiction, nobody would believe it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read on...., 25 Oct. 2013
This book is truly absorbing. Obviously the rarity of a personal account from a Waffen SS combat soldier is something in itself and this is very well written. The shock and disbelief the young SS soldiers experience when encountering the Russians is truly believable, especially when they leave their wounded Kameraden behind to the fate of the enemy with dire consequences. I was a little surprised at the level of animosity he showed against the Wehrmacht but this becomes understandable at the end as the witch-hunt begins.

Bartmann gives us a insight of what it was like to be an SS soldier in probably the most dangerous place in the world. He does not shirk responsibility and carry`s out ordered tasks with no concern for his own well being.

The retreat westwards is truly harrowing with the Russian vengeance on the civilian population particularly hard reading.

Obviously it his personal account during war time but I would be interested to see what happened post war, particularly to his brother and parents as there is little mention.

Suggest get the hard back as this is a book to own for life. Take down from the shelf every few years. You won`t need the TV on.
