Review: THE CROSS OF IRON by Willi Heinrich

Matt from Matt’s Book Blog read Willi Heinrich’s The Cross of Iron for the WWII reading challenge.  Here’s an excerpt from his review:

The combat scenes are incredible. The reader feels the rapid unfolding of bloody action and the frustration and fear of not knowing what is going on in other parts of skirmish and how other platoons are faring. The Russian enemy is unseen. There are only a couple of scenes in which the platoon comes eye to eye with the Ivans. Near the end the hero and his platoon are in running fight in a factory (like the horrific urban warfare at Stalingrad and Kharkov) that I would defy anybody to read without a break for catching one’s breath.
