About this title


Here is a look at the private side of war, through graphic, first-hand accounts from all sides. Some of the pieces come from the heights of powers - Hitler's architect, Albert Speer, describing daily life at the Fuhrer's mountain hideaway; American journalist Sigrid Schultz's personal interviews with Hitler shortly before he killed himself. But many others emerge from raw notes scrawled by fighters in the heat of combat; from former prisoners-of-war trying to remember what they had tried so hard at the time to forget; from civilians under bombardment taking their lives into their hands by writing instead of escaping. This is the way the war was really waged - one human being at a time - and the impact of these 24 first-hand experiences brings the war home.

From Library Journal:

Straubing has assembled 26 excerpts from books about World War II published between 1941 and 1979. Almost all of these works are out of print; some are classics and some have been deservedly forgotten. The compiler has divided this work into nine sections, including prelude to war; war on land, sea, and air; POWs; women; and homefront. Each section contains two to four selections. Straubing's objective and point of view is unclear, however. This is a miscellany of some interesting--and some not-so-interesting--war memoirs. With most of the excerpts available through interloan, this is not an essential purchase.
