Great insight for anyone interested in WW2

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you're interested in WW2 this is a great book for giving an insight into what it was really like to experience the war as a German soldier. For example I was really surprised to hear how so much was carrying on almost as normal even in the last months of the war.


What does John Wray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

At first I was put off by such a strong American accent narrating the life of a German soldier, but you get used to it very quickly and I found the narration fitted quite well with the story, it doesn't gush with emotion but that seemed right.


Any additional comments?

Other reviews touch on how the story isn't in strict chronological order, it starts with the battle of Berlin and then jumps back in time. I thought this would be annoying but it isn't so don't worry about that.
