Abstract:

"Hermann Pfrengle's World War II memoir describes in detail the unorthodox life and travails of an adolescent German boy on the war-scarred home front. As a member of the Jungvolk, a group loosely associated under the Hitler Youth organization, he helped construct the Siegfried Line, dodged bombs and cleared rubble with civilian defense, and worked in the war effort. A high-school student near Mainz on the Rhine River until his school was bombed, he rose in leadership positions while experiencing his country's deteriorating fortunes."

"The book focuses on people and human-interest subjects, not the war itself, supplemented by five maps and some 25 personal photographs. To aid the reader, the authors provide an introduction to the German involvement in the war, Wehrmacht organization, the land campaigns in Europe, and a glossary, index, and bibliography. Hermann Pfrengle's memoir adds an in-depth perspective to life on the German home front and the service of youth to the Third Reich."--Jacket.
