Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

In this novel, 19-year-old David Streiber, a Jew, is shipped out to Germany in 1959, although he doesn’t know what was formerly enemy territory will teach him who he is as a man. David knows what the Germans did to his people in the recent war, but he thinks it’s unfair to blame the youth for what their parents did. (A)s a young man, he’s eager to see what the frauleins are like. His Jewish heritage fits prominently into the story, as it shapes his relationship with his Army peers, his supervisors, the women he commingles with and the landsmen he meets at synagogue and on a trip to Israel. (T)he novel is a sharp look at an enlistee in the peacetime Army. David is a smart, likable and fairly identifiable tour guide. David’s is a quieter tale, not one full of adventure and battle. (A)lthough he’s not jumping into foxholes or performing acts of heroism, it’s enjoyable spending time with him. The strongest scenes follow David as he travels around 1950s Europe and Israel, allowing readers to experience these places through the eyes of a Jewish kid from Brooklyn. A unique view of an overlooked era in postwar Germany.

Review

Soldiers' Field: A Novel of Postwar Germany", by Raymond M. Weinstein, is a sprawling coming-of-age tale--chronicling the maturation of an inexperienced New Yorker in his eager search for sex, travel and adventure.   It is also the tale of an American cultural identity in transition at the cusp of the 1960s, one still struggling to come to terms with relationships between the sexes, religions and races.  This thinly veiled autobiographical tale provides an authentic window into one man's experience in postwar Germany fifteen years after the end of World War II.  As a first novel, "Soldiers' Field" is much to like.  One gets a real sense of what it felt like for this young Jewish American GI to live, work and love in the cradle of Naziism, and how those experiences defined his destiny and colored his future life's perspective forever.   Part diary, part travelogue, and part time capsule, the book will appeal to anyone interested in exploring the mindset of postwar America at the dawn of the 1960s.       IndieReader review
