Pen name of Guy Mouminoux. Good Ebook The Forgotten Soldier The best War Memoir I've ever read! Heart breaking, brutal, real, lyrical, depressing, insightful, and in some ways familiar - I simply loved this book. Guy Sajer tells his story as a young half french, half german boy joining the Wermacht in 1942. His story spans his journey from Germany to Poland for training in the transportation Corps and then to the east in the winter of '42 to resupply the German Army at the Don river. Later he joins the Gross Deutschland division as an infantryman in order to qualify for some leave and participates in many of the big battles of the eastern front. He was a soldier in the German army 67 years ago but, some of his descriptions of life as a soldier in a combat zone ring true to my own experiences. His storytelling is lyrical and heartbreakingly real. He's honest about his inadaquacies as a soldier - he doesn't recast his war experiences to make himself out to be a hero - and he doesn't shy away from describing his early fanatacism about the ideals of the third Reich and then his later disillusionment (based at least partly on his realization that being "french" - his dad was french and he was raised in france - he wouldn't ever really fit in with his german komeraden). His vivid descriptions of the Russian landscape, combat against the Bolsheviks, the bombings of cities in Germany and their aftermath, are amazing.This is a beautiful, painful, brutal book that anyone looking for a firsthand account of the horrors of combat and war should read. I've heard this referred to as a classic and I now know why.
