About this item
Gunter Koschorrek had to write this harrowing diary in the utmost secrecy. The keeping of diaries were prohibited by his superiors but his intention to produce an account of his experiences supported his subordination. This copy is in very near fine condition with only a slight stain on the bottom edge text block, the pages are in excellent condition and the cover captures soldiers in the plight of war. Koscherrek admits that, as a heavy gunner, he killed many of the enemy, though this book is an honest account of his experiences and is a memorial to the huge numbers on both sides who didn't survive the terrible conditions on the Eastern Front during Hitler's attack on the Soviet Union.
