The Forgotten Soldier

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Forgotten Soldier recounts the horror of World War II on the eastern front, as seen through the eyes of a teenaged German soldier. At first an exciting adventure, young Guy Sajer’s war becomes, as the German invasion falters in the icy vastness of the Ukraine, a simple, desperate struggle for survival against cold, hunger, and above all the terrifying Soviet artillery. As a member of the elite Gross Deutschland Division, he fought in all the great battles from Kursk to Kharkov.

Sajer's German footsoldier’s perspective makes The Forgotten Soldier a unique war memoir, the book that the Christian Science Monitor said "may well be the book about World War II which has been so long awaited." Now it has been handsomely republished containing fifty rare German combat photos of life and death at the eastern front. The photos of troops battling through snow, mud, burned villages, and rubble-strewn cities depict the hardships and destructiveness of war. Many are originally from the private collections of German soldiers and have never been published before. This volume is a deluxe edition of a true classic.

Customer Reviews

Rare photos???

The book description mentions 50 rare photos. Apparently these are only in the hardcover edition. Why mention it???
I give the book 5 stars because it is a 5 star book. I have read a old paperback version that is quite large and am pleased to have an electronic copy. The photos would have been a nice addition.

Great book

This is an amazing book. Buy it, you won't regret it!
