Customer Review

on 18 October 2013
A good story, well written in diary form and interesting from the aspect of how the "other side" saw the war and their duty from the soldier's point of view. An illuminating diary entry, 20th. July 1944, reveals the writer's naivety as, lamenting the attempted assassination of Hitler and the D Day landings, he describes Germany's war as an attempt to deliver Europe and western civilisation from the threat of Bolshevism and regards the invasion by the western allies as a stab in the back of Europeans (read: Germany and its allies) "fighting the Asiatic hordes in the East". An indication, perhaps, of how the German fighting personnel swallowed Nazi propaganda. Heinz Knoke describes in detail his many "combats", and he does so in an articulate and matter-of-fact way without arrogance and with a measure of sympathy for the victims who fell to his guns. This is definitely worth a read.
