Présentation de l'éditeur

For the German soldier fighting under Hitler, keeping a diary was strictly forbidden. So Gunter Koschorrek, a fresh young recruit, wrote his notes on whatever scraps of paper he could find and sewed the pages into the lining of his winter coat. Left with his mother on his rare trips home, this illicit diary eventually was lost—and did not come to light until some 40 years later when Koschorrek was reunited with his daughter in America. It is this remarkable document, a unique day-to-day account of the common German soldier’s experience, that makes up the memoir that is Blood Red Snow.

Biographie de l'auteur

HASH(0x96b8c8a0) étoiles sur 5 Blood Red Snow - An enlightening Ost Front biography 12 février 2003
Par john m price, md - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Blood Red Snow is yet another personal account of life for a common landser on the Ost Front from 1942-45.From the forword where the author describes his unlikely retrieval of manuscripts, I was gripped by this narrative. The author was able to convey the chaos of the retreat from Stalingrad, from which he narrowly escaped, in a very personal manner. Intimate details of his life with comrades at the front are interesting and add validity to this piece. I would rate this book as highly as Gottlob Bidermann's recent biography, In Deadly Combat. Both are hard hitting,touching, and, I believe, factual. Students of the Ost Front should not miss this excellent read.

HASH(0x96b8cca8) étoiles sur 5 A riveting memoir 12 février 2007
Par R. Hillis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I really enjoyed the book. There were a few areas that a good editor could have polished, but overall an enjoyable book. The combat was brutal, but you felt at the end of the book that you were there too. It wasn't written by a war college, or compiled from after action reports. If you want orders of battle or such you will be disappointed, however, if you want to read about the eastern front and what it was like for the regular Wermacht grunts, you will love it. I have had it for over a year, and even now when I am between books, I find myself reading it again.....it never gets old.

HASH(0x96b8cd20) étoiles sur 5 Beautifully described German war 3 septembre 2006
Par Jeffrey L. Thurston - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I really enjoyed this book; if you have an interest in WW2 on the Eastern Front this book describes it from a machine-gunner's perspective on the ground, down and dirty. To me the best part of the book was the description of the approaches to Stalingrad- I think what can only be imagined in history books is captured on paper well. You get the feeling of "...Stalingrad's hot breath..." and how eagerness for battle becomes a numbing fight for survival very quickly. The stolidity of the German soldier and his pride in the craftmanship of war come across clearly. You really get a sense of how it must have felt to win constantly at a tactical level but still be retreating constantly- scenes where Russian tanks roll past retreating columns of Germans to reach a battle ahead permeate the middle part of the book. There are many beautifully depicted battle scenes throughout and it goes on right to the end- truth really can be as amazing as fiction. The only thing which made me a bit skeptical was the author's firm belief (denial?) that it was the Russians who massacred all those people in villages they passed through on their retreat. I think after a couple of years on the Russian Front he must have had a pretty good idea of the nature of German occupation but I think this is a common theme in many war autobiographies from all sides- civilians seemed to have just up and died on their own! Lastly, throughout the book Russian soldiers use Kalashnikovs- I think PPSh-41's are what he means.

HASH(0x96b8f0cc) étoiles sur 5 Great Memoir read 25 février 2006
Par D. Irish - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
If you're in to reading memoirs from true soldiers than I definitely would recommend this book.

When I set out to get an unbiased view of the German soldier during WWII (because not all German soldiers were jew killing murderers), a friend reccomended this book to me. I also bought "Forgotten Soldier" by Guy Sajer.

In my opinion it's written very well, and you really end up feeling for their plight. You get a feeling for the utter disarray and unorganization of the German army past the Stalingrad time frame.

If your leaning one way or the other to buy this book, I feel you'll enjoy reading it!

HASH(0x96b8f204) étoiles sur 5 Interesting Memoir of the Eastern Front 25 février 2003
Par Matthew P. Arsenault - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Koschorrek's work serves as an interesting memoir of an aspect of World War II not often discussed in the West. Yes, we often hear tales of the horrors of a winter invasion in Russia, and of Hitler's faults in directing the campaign, but we seldom hear a first person account of the conflict on the Russian steppes. I knew the battle for Stalingrad was full of blood and violence, but Koschorrek's work brought the actual sights of frontline combat to the fore. His descriptions of waves of Russian soldiers assaulting his machine gun position, and the incessant barrage of artillery shells draws a chilling reminder of the utter horror and destruction faced on all sides during WW II.
I also found the records of Koschorrek's growing disillusionment with Hitler and his Nazi party very enlightening. As a frontline soldier, Koschorrek doesn't claim to have been an expert on the political situation in Germany. Many times he announces that he was fighting for the German people, rather than the Third Reich. And towards the end of his extremely long time on the Eastern Front, Koschorrek claims only to be fighting for his fellow soldiers. It must have been a terrible struggle to continue on in a failing attempt to capture Stalingrad, and then endure a savage retreat all the way to the gates of Berlin. To see one's homeland utterly destroyed would be terrible in itself, but then to realize this destruction was caused by the ideas of a madman would almost be too terrible to bear. Koschorrek's book serves as yet another good reminder of the lunacy and horror that is war.
The one disappointment I found in Koschorrek's book was the writing. Although I understand that he was probably attempting to vanquish some long standing demons, the use of a co-author would have made the book more readable. His complete use of first person narration, at times, becomes trying. I see that he was attempting to retain the vision of frontline life as it happened, but this reader would have rather seen him use some other literary methods in order to bring more cohesion to the story. Still, Blood Red Snow is a good book.
