One of the best autobiographical novels from the perspective of a German soldier. Knappe served as "assistant" to a general on the Eastfront and describes in detail the occurrence of his military career starting from his education and personal background to his advancement to France and his final campaign in Russia and Berlin. The beauty of this books lies in the perspective, that this not black and white and focuses on the war, not the occurrences surrounding it.
