Interesting read

I gave this four stars for being a good read and not a jumbled mishmash as some narratives are. It's told from an interesting point of view.

An informative read although the political correctness of the writing is a little in doubt. Certainly gives us a good picture of how the German retreat at the Eastern front was from a soldier's perspective and credit to the author, the writing is not glorifying the SS and the Germans as much as a memoir piece of a volunteer for the SS might have suggested. Have been reading it as research material for my historical novel and for that purpose it was enormously helpful.

“The only thing that disturbed our equanimity during the wonderful days of rest and peace were American and Russian fighter-planes that sometimes came diving from the sky, and with their guns turned road users into bloody shreds. These attacks were not just against us soldiers, but also against the farmers in the fields, their wives and daughters, and against the small children on their way to school. This made us furious.” 0 likes
“A t the end of World War II, the Nuremberg war tribunal sentenced the Waffen SS, possibly the finest fighting force the world has seen since Leonidas and his Spartans at Thermopylae, the bravest of the brave, collectively as war criminals.” 0 likes
