Ian Allan 60th Anniversary / Compendium Publishing, new ed., 2002. 128 pp., numerous cold., + b&w photo-ills., + cold., maps & plans. D.j., 30 x 22cm. Nr.FINE. Here is an honest attempt to explain what it was like to be a German infantry soldier during World War II. The story is told through numerous unpublished photographs taken by Gerhard Sandmann, a typical infantryman, who served from September 1939 until he was captured in 1944. Backing up the photographs are reminiscences and battle accounts from individual soldiers and official wartime reports. These examine every aspect of the daily life of a soldier – the moments of sheer terror and those of comradeship.
