His pre-war army training
His participation in the invasion of France
Operation Barbarossa....Knappe was an officer in the horse drawn artillery and rode on horseback to the outskirts of Moscow.
General staff training during the war. Knappe was intelligent, competitive and capable, and it was a high honour to be selected for General Staff Training.
His experiences in Berlin in the last
days of the war.
His incarceration in Russian prison camps for four years after the war.
The book was "ghost written" by Mr Brusaw and occasionally one reads something that is untrue or does not ring true. For example the book states that the night of June 22nd 1941, the night of the invasion of Russia, was moonlit; it was not. So the book loses a star. But don't let this put you off. This is a worthwhile book about the second world war written by a man who, while not a saint, was no "evil Nazi" either.
I found the book very interesting. You get a lot of insight in what it must have been like for ordinary Germans during the war.
