    One thought on “Infantry Aces: The German Soldier in Combat in World War II”

    1. A fairly descriptive account of various Iron Cross earners during World War II. This book provides a detailed look at fighting that many World War II histories tend to avoid, and covers the military actions of Wehrmacht men, a paratrooper, and two Waffen-SS. To have a book that describes the actions of German soldiers while making no effort to praise their nonmilitary traits/activities is quite nice; you're able to read about the military tactics of what are widely considered some of the best so [...]

    2. An interesting read. especially from the German perspective during WWII, particularly during the Russian Campaign. However, it seemed to be the idea of the book to provide stories of individual leaders and outstanding fighters during the war, as well as the various battle tactics used. I'm glad I read this book, being that I am one interested in that time period and it is more rare to hear of the German fighters than those of the victorious side.

    3. This, as I recollect, is s collection of translated contemporary stories of infantrymen published in Germany during the war. While occasionally exciting, they lack much context and generally have little value for the historical reader interested in the doctrine, equipment, tactics and techniques of the German military. I bought it off a tiny bookshelf of English books in an internet cafe in a tiny town in Costa Rica. I more-or-less ditched it after finding a week old New York Times.

    4. One of my favor authors to write about the German perspective of war. This is short stories about extraordinary feats by individual German soldiers of various branches. I really enjoyed this. Usually 3-5 pages given to each soldiers bio.

    5. Excellent overview of the soldier's life in the German army of WW2. Great history book, Very recommended
