Dealer Notes
This book reveals the true but almost unbelievable experiences of a German sergeant who fought on the Eastern Front and suffered captivity in P.O.W. camps and penal settlements in Siberia. A hair-raising account of the savage clash between the two strongest nations in Europe, it contains much little-known information; how, for instance, the Germans created the Partisan movement against themselves and how the ill-famed camps in Siberia are run as much by bandit gangs as by the authorities themselves. This is no book for the squeamish or delicate mind".
