    Should be an "eye-opening" read if nothing else.

    I have a feeling that a lot of these German soldiers may have had these sort of conversations for other reasons. I highly doubt that many of them are entirely true. If I were pissed off and locked up in a German POW camp with some comrades of mine, I would probably make up all sorts of crazy stories about how I did this and that to whoever as well. At most I this book will be a good insight as to how German soldiers acted within the camps.

    That is a war, and the war bears the face of the animal. That is concerning all the peoples, not just in the Wehrmacht etc

    It still happens today don't it......Take the current trial of the 'Kill Team' in the States, behind closed doors of course. You wouldn't imagine that people from a civilised country could behave like that, but they do. And so far it's fact, not made up to impress their buddies....

    I don't know. I guess I will have to read it before I can make any solid judgement.

    Good, and happy that this can now be put to rest. We can now collect our relics and know for certain that 'these' belong in the BAD box
    and the 'others' can be put into the RIGHTEOUS box.
    Yes, it was said correctly above.

    Many thanks Herr/Mister Tony Paterson.

    Only those who were there can judge. Aussie soldiers today are being called racist cause they call Iraqis "smoothies"..... If that true then I am racist, we would refer to them with all sorts of names. Though one they hated being called was " alibaba" they evade him as a their.....we used to wind thrm up by calling them that!!! Another thing we did in east Timor, becsuse we were alway being hassled for chocolate, was to give the kids hexamine block covered in vegemite.....didn't get hassled much after that. Cruel i know, but at the time it made sense to prevent the kids being beat up by other kids for chocolate. Your whole mind set changes when your in a high pressure situation, and thing you would never do or o in normal circumstances come out.
