A nice and easy book to read No statistics as such just memoirs of the german soldier (all forces ) the best chapter i enjoyed most was the last called prisoners , you dont often read of the experiences of the german prisoners of war either in russia or britain In all a jolly good book please be aware this book also comes under the title servents of evil also written by bob caruthers So dont do what i did and buy that book as well
