Heinz Postenrieder was born Jan. 24, 1907 in Mering by Augsburg and studied theology before becoming an optician's apprentice. He was drafted in 1939 and eventually was taken as a prisoner of war. Befriended by a Russian physician who helped secure his release in Nov., 1945, Postenrieder opened an optician's office in the pulverized inner city of Pforzheim, Germany in 1947 and founded the Neues Optikerjournal in 1959 and later the controversial Optika (currently Opti) in 1974. He died in Pforzheim in 1979.Review:
Informative first-hand account of life on the battlefield in Russia during World War II. The unlimited photos magnify the gruesome conditions for soldiers and civilians alike. --Ragu Hermscht
Tremendous work! How few first-hand accounts we yet have on hand of WWII and fewer still of those from the German soldier's perspective. Adding to this book's appeal are the unlimited number of photographs and the German/English translation. A genuine look at war and its effects. --Geoff Tesch
