Sajer is blunt in explaining his reason for sharing his experiences: to reanimate, with all the intensity I can summon, those distant cries from the slaughterhouse. He succeeds in doing just that. . . . This book will remain relevant because it explores the psychology of the soldier at war.
"May well be accorded equal respect with "War and Peace " as the masterpiece reporting war s reality."
"I don t think that anyone who reads [it] to the end will ever forget it."
"May be the book about World War II which has been so long awaited."
"A work of soul."
"Eloquent . . . powerful . . . Critics have likened it to "All Quiet on the Western Front"."
"Transcends language and nationality to address the human race."
"Few memoirs can compare with this work in range of feeling, depths of self-analysis, or vivid recounting of combat. This exception book is highly recommended."
"Must be read. . . . An enduring indictment of the evil of war and what it does to man."
"May well be accorded equal respect with War and Peace as the masterpiece reporting war's reality."--David Douglas Duncan, photojournalist and author of This is War! and War Without Heroes

Sajer describes some combat situations in detail but also skims over other events which he can no longer or chooses not to recall. There are some gory details and some of the events are told with hindsight. Some books you want more, in my opinion this could have done with a little less (560pages). Mainly some of his thoughts he had at the time, but this doesn't distract from the story much.
A good insight into the conditions that's both the Russians and German armies when through.
