Description

From 1939 to 1945 a generation of German men sacrificed their youth for the wrong cause and then rejoined a society that wanted to forget the horrors of war. These men grew old with the inward silence of the defeated, in a country where their children did not want to know what they had experienced. Their story is retold here, through their own eyes, by the photographs they took during their service in the German army. Comprised of unpublished, personal photographs, this fascinating volume provides an unprecedented glimpse into the life and experiences of the ordinary German soldier during the crucial war years of 1941 and '42, when easy victories ebbed away into hard-fought battles. Each illustration is accompanied by a detailed caption, offering anecdotes and first-hand information gained from extensive interviews with German veterans. This book is destined to become a valuable addition to the bibliography of the Second World War.
