“Sajer is blunt in explaining his reason for sharing his experiences: ‘to reanimate, with all the intensity I can summon, those distant cries from the slaughterhouse.’ He succeeds in doing just that. . . . This book will remain relevant because it explores the psychology of the soldier at war.”
"May well be accorded equal respect with War and Peace as the masterpiece reporting war’s reality."
"I don’t think that anyone who reads [it] to the end will ever forget it."
"May be the book about World War II which has been so long awaited."
"A work of soul."
"Eloquent . . . powerful . . . Critics have likened it to All Quiet on the Western Front."
"Transcends language and nationality to address the human race."
"Few memoirs can compare with this work in range of feeling, depths of self-analysis, or vivid recounting of combat. This exception book is highly recommended."
"Must be read. . . . An enduring indictment of the evil of war and what it does to man."
