Excerpts of Reviews
"...At a moment in history when the nexus between extremist ideology, individual
fanaticism, and highly motivated military elites once again dominates the security
and military planning of the world’s democracies, the author provides a thoughtful,
insightful, and highly readable account of how a seemingly ordinary, well-educated
young man can be manipulated by the values of an absolutist, all-embracing belief
system, allied with longstanding familial values, into willingly going out to do
righteous battle against a particular concept of 'barbarism...'
The Journal of Military History, July 2003
"Highly recommended...complements The Good Soldier and Into the Mountains Dark."
Armchair General Magazine, September 2005
"A strong description of a young man's burning idealism to serve his country and how this idealism is later shattered."
Swedish State Institute for Living History, August 2005
"Highly valuable because of its grass-roots perspective of the war and the Third Reich."
Svenska Dagbladet (Swedish Daily Newspaper), 2 June 2004
"[This book possesses] an authenticity lacking in works written and also adjusted long after the war."
Gefle Dagblad ("Gefle [Sweden] Daily Newspaper"), 21 June 2004
