These battles cost the German army in the east well over a half-million casualties. About This Item We aim to show you accurate product information. Manufacturers, suppliers and others provide what you see here, and we have not verified it. The Bagration offensive by the Soviets during the summer of , which effectively destroyed Army Group Center, has been neglected in the memoirs of the average soldier perhaps because a good proportion of those who experienced it did not survive.
Scheiderbauer, the adjutant to a battalion headquarters when the offensive began, does an excellent job conveying the chaos and desperation that engulfed the Army Group as it disintegrated including an incredibly desperate attempt to cross a river without bridges or boats while under fire. The chapter on the fall of Danzig and his own capture vividly evokes the near-total collapse of the Wehrmacht in the east.
The account of his imprisonment after the war is also unique because he did not have a particularly harrowing experience. These are important contributions to the literature and should be read by anyone working on these topics, and these chapters alone make the book worthwhile. As a memoir, however, the book has several shortcomings. The most significant is the lack of any acknowledgment of the racially brutal nature of the war in the east. The only hint of brutality was the casual mention that men from his unit were required to visit the site of the Katyn Massacre, a crime committed by the Russians, not the Germans.
A casual reader would be left with the impression that nothing at all happened behind the front lines, despite the fact that the Germans conducted major operations against Jews and partisans in areas just behind the front areas Scheiderbauer admits he crossed several times. While it is perhaps not surprising that he did not see roundups of the Jewish population a sight few front-line soldiers reported seeing , it is surprising that he makes absolutely no mention of the treatment of partisans since Army Group Center's area where he spent the entire war was the most active partisan area on the entire eastern front.
That a front-line soldier did not see much of this might not be unusual, but we are left guessing what he witnessed and must assume that he saw nothing. The alternative is to assume that he left things out because he did not want to include such horrible experiences in a memoir intended for his daughter. For a family history such an omission may be understandable, but as a testament to historical events it is a serious flaw. We are left wondering what else he may have delicately omitted.
