Publisher Comments:

Here are dozens of gripping, never-before-told stories of battle in World War II–from the point of view of the enemy.

This is an authentic account–often in their own words–of German infantry aces, common foot soldiers who were thrust into a blazing maelstrom of bloody horror such as the world had never seen. They faced the savage onslaught of fire-belching tanks at Kursk and carried wounded comrades hundreds of yards to safety through a hail of bullets. They fought alone behind enemy lines, tackled a foe vastly superior in numbers, and served as machine gunners in a thousand dangerous actions. On the frozen Russian steppes, under the scorching African desert sun, in the final desperate battles, they were outnumbered and outgunned, and faced impossible odds. Here are the fascinating stories of the men who stared death in the face during some of the most brutal battles ever waged.

Synopsis:

This authentic account is composed of dozens of gripping, never-before-told stories of battle during World War II told from the point of view of German infantry aces--common foot soldiers who were thrust into a blazing maelstrom of bloody horror. (June)
