An absolute pleasure, quite eloquently written and performed. Other biographies can learn much from this one.
Compelling story of a pious youth brought up by war. Starkly vivid view of the life in and around the frontline, from the perspective of a junior infantry officer. Subject of crimes was directly dwelled upon at great length, perhaps by the nature of very active frontline career. My impression is that the author was honest throughout, especially considering the fact that this manuscript was not intended to be published.

Best ww2 autobiography I’ve listened to. And I’ve read/listened to a lot! Very recommended.

It was a bit of a struggle to finish it as the storyline felt somewhat disjointed. There seemed to be a lot of editing going on here from the author. It did not feel like a warts and all revelation of the life of a soldier on the Eastern front. Rather it seemed like a very self censored and selectively sanitised recollection.

interesting listen but it was very much facts and events based. Not much about how he felt about the war.
