This very limited edition was prepared for the descendents and grandchildren of the former soldier. The text describes contact with the defeated German people and how they lived and the destruction still evident in the cities seven years after the war. Some notes are on the death of Josef Stalin, end of the Korean War and Hillary's ascent of Mt. Everest which occured at that time. The diary traces the soldier's movements around Germany and the activities of his comrades. Text includes some poetry written at the time and which was eventually published in book form in England. Illustrated with many photos.
