I've read half of it, and I must say its pretty amazing.
A day to day account of action from the Eastern Front of a Leutnant serving as company commander in the 94. Infanterie Division.
The detail of combat described, is right down to the squad.
There is detailed aerial photos and generally the front described is only about 500 meter wide, so really easy to follow events, and puts things into perspective.


Very helpful understanding basic functionality of the German "Kompanie" in battle conditions.
Working with armored support and artillery observers, neighbouring units, etc.


Very sobering to imagine what Stalingrad must have been from the eyes of a foot soldier.

I rate this memoir 9.5/10
