    If you want a real story of the ultimate (imo) french hero working hand in hand with brave Englishmen,try this.
    Every 2 or 3 years ,i'm reading it again,in order to not forget what was their idea of freedom .
    Mix it with some youtube documentary on the Tempests and Typhoon and you'll get the point,they were real heros.

    the Sepp Alleberger book was a great read! (even though it is controversial, similar to Sajer's)

    Here are a couple memoirs I have enjoyed:

    - War Diaries of a Panzer Soldier (Erich Hager w/ 17th Pz Div on the Russian Front)
    - At Leningrad's Gates - Wilhelm Lubbeck w/ Army Gruppe North

    Ive been reading alot of Unit Combat Histories lately tho too, which can be just as interesting since most have Vet's interveiws in them.
    We must have similar taste Bill, as I have both these books also and you are right they are a great read!

    Received this memoir today about a Belgian in the Das Reich Division.
    To my knowledge only available in Dutch.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I keep meaning to pick up a copy of Old soldiers Never die, partly because he was RWF and also because I understand it is a great book. Currently re reading Goodbye to all that by Graves on breaks in work and Sassoon's Trilogy in the evenings before bed.

    A recent read which I really enjoyed was Goodbye to all that, by Edwin Champion Vaughan, another WWI memoir, a cracking good read IMHO.

    Whatever its just an opinion.
