Focuses on the daily life of German soldiers when they weren't involved in combat operations. Relying on wartime British, American and German references, this reference sheds light on a topic that has only received passing coverage in most publications. It explores many of the intangibles like religion, leave, propaganda etc... that motivated the German soldier to fight. Lavishly illustrated with over 900 photographs, this is a must for every serious collector and historian of the German military in WWII. H/C. 256p.
