Though this is a rather "narrow" volume, it contains enough content to please the reader who retains an interest of the subject matter. You will read of the wartime journey of Bernard Averbeck, a youthful and spirited soldier who spends the majority of his service with the Panzerjager element of the Wehrmacht. I think the obvious flaw is the limited number of pages, only 117, but these few are very well written, offering some humour and frontline combat. The book also contains several photo's taken by Averbeck, though these are of variable quality.

HASH(0x944991ec) out of 5 stars This book is more of a soldiers personal life off the field 11 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be more of a chronicle of this soldiers life off the battlefield than what it meant to be a soldier in the field. The last chapter is devoted to his stint as a prisoner of war and how relatively easy it was to work the system. There were a few short accounts of his action on the front but not alot of detail. Wish it had more with only one descriptive engagement I can recall about action against soviet tanks and the tactics the gunners used to defeat greater numbers. Not for the serious historian.

HASH(0x9410a6c0) out of 5 stars A Brief First-Person Account of War in Russia 17 Jan. 2002
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
3 stars - The book is brief in content and lacks the detail that Forgotten Soldiers or Soldat present in their accounts of German life in the front lines of WWII. Nevertheless, it does present some interesting vignettes of battle and some description of tactical actions that the anti-tank teams used to defeat the formidable Soviet T-34 and KV tanks.
These descriptions were the best part of the book. The rest is more of a personal retrospective that adds little to our understanding of the German soldiers' perspective or predicament. The personal experiences off the battlefield seem almost to be filler material.
I recommend the book in that it is short and easy to read, and the tactical descriptions of anti-tank warfare are helpful (if you are into that sort of thing). However, don't expect too much - if you have read and enjoyed Forgotten Soldiers, then this will disappoint you in its lack of detail. Borrow the book if possible (if it was a movie, I'd reccomend waiting to see it on video or even TBS vs. paying full admission at the theater).

HASH(0x9410a948) out of 5 stars Excellent reading, a different perspective on WWII 30 Dec. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It made me appreciate the fact that not only GI's had it tough but so did our enemy. I found the book interesting, enlightening and was unable to put it down until I was done.
