This is an authentic account of German infantry aces-one paratrooper, two members of the Waffen-SS, and five Wehrmacht soldiers-who were thrust into the maelstrom of death and destruction that was World War II. Enduring countless horrors on the icy Eastern Front, in the deserts of Africa, and on other bloody fields, these rank-and-file soldiers took on enemy units alone, battled giant tanks, stormed hills, and rescued wounded comrades. A cross-section from the world of the common soldier, their stories reveal the brutal heart of infantry combat.
FRANZ KUROWSKI served as a reporter in the German army during World War II and has since written over one hundred books. His previous works include Panzer Aces, Panzer Aces II, and Luftwaffe Aces.
