The Forgotten Soldier
The Forgotten Soldier by Guy Sajer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An extraordinary memoir which provides some insight into the Wehrmacht and the way in which it managed to maintain its viability as a fighting force through three years of retreat. I’ve yet to find a similar biography, and one is forced to rely on more academic works to explain the phenomena and the consequences of the German Army’s acquiescence in Hitler’s folly.
