Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Stranger to Myself (Hardcover)
I have had the great fortune to share correspondence with several veterans of the 1941-45 Russo-German conflict. They too experienced the very particular horrors associated with this ideological war in the East, much of it expressed in their letters to me. Naturally i cannot speak for them, but i doubt if any single one of them would recognize the war in which Reese took part in! Books like this infuriate the veteran's, and alternately soothe the soul of the post war generation of apologist's, holding sway and lecturing people on this subject. If you want a more realistic account of German Soldiery on the Eastern front, purchase either Blood Red Snow by Koschorrek or Campaign In Russia by Leon Degrelle! There was NO room for sentimentality in this conflict on BOTH sides and in truth there were very few Willy Reese's participating on this battlefield!

Leon Degrelle? You mean the Belgian collaborator, war criminal, Holocaust denier and fantasist extraordinaire who had the mother of all man-crushes on Adolf H? Nope, I think I'll consult more reliable (and significantly less depraved) sources for my WWII history, thanks very much.

Maybe there were few Willy Reese's fighting on the Eastern Front but I find it hard to see how you would know that. And in any case they deserve to be heard.
