    eBook amateur sleuth.co Ú Die Stalinorgel PDF ↠ stalinorgel epub, Die Stalinorgel PDFThis is not a book about the Katyusha rock launcher it is a novel about the fighting in the Eastern Front graphically described The author Gert Ledig was a veteran in the war at the Eastern Front and so what he described in the novel is probably from his experience in the warWhat strikes the reader immediately is the brutality of the conditions of the battle A Russian advance bogged down the Germans on the other hand had run out of everything food water ammunition and replacements Combatants from both sides were lost some surrendered if just to get away from that constant bombardment or in the case of the Runner to avoid another run between the frontline and the Battalion H Those who were injured and could not get away were either treated or ravaged depending on the random deal of luck And then there was the absurdity of the command some of which appeared to have come out of a children's storybook pg 79 though nothing beats the attempt to carry out a court martial in the middle of

    eBook amateur sleuth.co Ú Die Stalinorgel PDF ↠ stalinorgel epub, Die Stalinorgel PDFThis is one of the best works of fiction I have read on the Eastern Front Told from the perspective of both Germans and Russians Soviet alike Ledig's narrative of the events taking place over the space of two days does much to convey the sheer horror and terror of war The individuals whose interwoven experiences form the basis of the novel are known simply by title the Lieutenant or the Runner etc The lack of names gives each man an almost anonymous character one of countless like him and this is reflected in their violent deaths which are described in a very matter of fact manner This book does not glorify war There are no heroes and villains merely regular unexceptional men thrown into an environment from which many will no
