Eastern Inferno now available for pre-order

My sister-in-law’s grandfather’s journal of his service in the German infantry on the Eastern Front during World War II, which she and her brother edited, is now available for pre-order from Amazon. (Short excerpts here.) In addition to being a rifleman, he also was his unit’s cartographer, so the book is going to include some of his hand-drawn maps.

I am really proud of Christine and Mason. They recognized early the value of what they had, and they have worked hard and spent a lot of their time and money to bring to light this lengthy piece  of primary source material from an episode in history in which a high percentage of participants did not survive. I hope it will be of help to historians. I know it will be of interest to anyone, professional or amateur, who studies World War II.

And it’s just my opinion, but even having seen probably every WWII movie ever made, I think it would make a helluva movie.
