The defeat of the Third Reich is best told through the authentic voices of those who fought on the front line. This collection includes the stories of German soldiers fighting the Red Army on the Eastern Front. It includes those of Horst Messer, who served on the last East Prussian panzer tank but was captured and spent four years in Russian captivity at Riga; Hans Obermeier, who recounts service with Eastern Front training units, capture on the Czech front, and escape from Siberia; and an anonymous Wehrmacht soldier in Slovakia given orders to execute Russian prisoners.
