Abstract:

"When a 20-year old Waffen-SS veteran of two years? combat against the Soviets and Americans is confronted with the awful, undeniable truth of the Holocaust, he must reconcile it with his pride in his comrades? battlefield sacrifices. The author served in SS Mountain Infantry Regiment 11 ?Reinhard Heydrich?, part of 6th SS Mountain Division ?Nord?. The book is mostly an account of his extensive combat service against the Soviets in northern Karelia and Finland, with a shorter section describing combat against the Americans in the Vosges and in the Saar-Moselle triangle. Voss reflects on the totality of his wartime experiences, from the origins of his reasons for enlisting in the Waffen-SS to his experiences in US captivity. The result is a compelling and honest account."--from the publisher.
