A German officer, Siegfried Knappe, along with co-writer Wolfgang Cooper, offer an introspective and unique look at the inner workings of the German Armed Forces during World War II.
In the wake of German bashing in recent years by American and foreign media, the book also offers a detailed look on how post-war Germany and the men who served in the Wehrmacht should be viewed by historians as well as the general public.
