This is the second volume of the memoirs of Dr Rehfeldt and, as with the first volume, it reads very well, providing a rare view of mortar units. The author has produced a rare account of what was a critical element in German artillery capabilities and he paints a vivid picture. – Very Highly Recommended.

DESCRIPTION: This is the second volume of the memoirs of Dr Rehfeldt and, as 
with the first volume, it reads very well, providing a rare view of mortar units. The 
author has produced a rare account of what was a critical element in German 
artillery capabilities and he paints a vivid picture. – Very Highly Recommended.

The author left for the front in October 1941 at a time when Germany was still 
dominant on the European and North African battle fronts. Volume II picks up his 
story as he returned to his old unit in May 1944 when Germany was being beaten 
back on all fronts and victory was no longer in prospect, only the hope of a reasonable 
defeat before the complete destruction of the Third Reich.

The book is set in a logical series of sections, each addressing a battle front, followed 
by a section of images relating to that stage of the author's experiences. There are 
almost 200 images, photographs and hand-drawn maps produced by the author. This 
is a very worthwhile read for any with an interest in military history. It reads very 
easily and absorbs the reader. The images are very good but the text also paints 
pictures in words.
