I should have read this a long time ago.

There isn't a lot more I can say that isn't already covered by better and more prolific reviewers. I can say the story is intense and makes you feel like you are with the young German soldier as hell falls around him.

It is a very dark story though, one that I don't recommend if you have PTSD, triggers or any fragility. It is one of those books I very much appreciate (much like the book I read last year 'The Things They Carried', a book with a lot of similarities, just this is about World War I, where last year's book was about the Vietnam War.

I recommend you do it, but only once and only when you are feeling you are up for a challenge emotionally.
