You think that All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque was great book about the brutality of war. You should read Sven Hassel's books - they show brutality of World War II through the eyes of German soldiers from Penal Battalion.

That was my first book of this kind and it was a good read. Firstly, I did not really like the whole thing, but after I have started to like the main characters I had to realise that I enjoy it more and more. It shows you the true face of war. I will definitely read some of the other books as well.
