3.0 out of 5 stars
A good read, 27 Sept. 2006
All though compelled to give the author an above average credit for bringing his memoires into light, this book is a fairly fast finished read, and sometimes leaves too much to be wished for in details. The memoir gives a descent insight in the fighting on parts of Eastern Front and interestingly also in the Southern parts of France, a battle area much overlooked. Most fascinating is how fast the author rose in the ranks from regular soldier to regimental commander during the progression of the war. Still it remains only a good read.
I would suggest reading also "In Deadly Combat" by Gottlob Herbert Bidermann.
