DESCRIPTION: This is an important book at several levels. The author was a German Jew who fought through WWI as a German soldier, received two Iron Cross awards, remained in Germany until 1937, fled the Nazis to England and was commissioned in the British Army. An engaging story that is well-told.

As a story of the Great War from the perspective of an ordinary German soldier, this is an important book because very few accounts of this type survived.

The diary is carefully kept and written in a generally light-hearted style. There are good images in the photo-plate section to add to the readable text.
