Heinrich's story of post war Germany, the disparities
between those making it, even though with shadowy pasts,
and those struggling; the returning soldiers who were on
the Eastern front at the end of the war had to serve 7 years
in Russian concentration camps are now looking for acceptance,
redemption and a job.

I liked Heinrich's writing style so I enjoyed the book. It's
related, but a side-step out of his usual war genre.
