5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest of war novels, 12 Jan. 2001
By 
This review is from: The Case of Sergeant Grischa (Lost Treasures) (Paperback)
When first published in the late 1920's this title was extravagantly praised by people such as David Lloyd George and J.B Priestley, as well as of course in the author's native Germany. As the horrifyingly remorseless tale of an individual caught in the remorseless toils of the miltary machine, no other book matches this. It is a devastating indictment of military brutality. Grischa is a simple soldier of the Russian Army, a prisoner of war of the Germans. He escapes and determines to find his way home across the war-ravaged wastes of Central Europe. To evade arrest, he wears the uniform of a dead German soldier he finds in the snow. But the dead German was a deserter, and when Grischa is recaptured he is sentenced to be shot. He struggles to establish his true identity, but will it save him??

4.0 out of 5 stars Book Review, 19 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Case of Sergeant Grischa (Lost Treasures) (Paperback)
Very good book with great story line. May not be a book for everyone though. Very much a book dealing with war. Took a long while to arrive.
