I have previously read "All Quiet....." and "Three Comrades" by Remarque - both excellent books of WW1 and 30s Germany. "Time to love....." is of the same quality covering a German soldier's view of defeat in Russia. It covers events in a very human way exposing the grotesque effects of Nazism. The writng is sometimes very poetical and at other times quite simple. Throughout it is very atmospheric and you can imagine the feelings of soldiers at the Russian front and civilians in a bombed out German city. I recommend this as one of the best books of the 20th century.
