This review is from: In the Fire of the Eastern Front: The Experiences of a Dutch Waffen-SS Volunteer, 1941-45 (Stackpole Military History Series) (Kindle Edition)
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.

I suggest you read Savage Continent: Europe in the Aftermath of World War II to find out what happened with not only Prussian people after the war.
