About the Author
The late Georg Grossjohann (1911–1992) enlisted in the Reichswehr in 1928 as a Zwölfender ("Twelve Point Buck"), a soldier bound for twelve years' service to the Weimar Republic. His World War II service began as an NCO officer aspirant in the Polish Campaign, and ended as a regimental commander. In between, he earned numerous decorations, including the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross.

He was a professional Reichswehr-enlisted-man-turned-officer by a Wehrmacht in need of commissioned leaders for its vastly expanded ranks. He had no time for snobbery or frippery, and enjoyed life when he could. Far from being a cad or roué, however, he was a decent, straightforward soldier who shared hardship with his men, set the example, did his job . . . and expected others to do the same.
