* An intriguing Eastern Front diary revealing the German struggle during the final months of the war This is the war diary of Unteroffizier Eduard Bodenmuller, who served in the 4th Company of Panzer Regiment Brandenburg, part of Panzergrenadier Division Brandenburg, and covers the period of February to April 1945 on the Eastern Front. Bodenmuller's company was equipped with Panther tanks, and he and his comrades were involved in intense combat with the advancing Red Army, mostly in Silesia. His diary entries are concise yet also provide a lot of information which more extensive memoirs omit. In particular, the immediacy of his notes is refreshing, providing frank admissions of ammunition shortages and increasing losses as inexperienced and under supplied German troops battled against the Soviets. He also provides insight into German and Soviet combat tactics and methods during the final months of the war, including the great difficulties the Panthers faced in combating the heavy Josef Stalin tank. Complemented by new maps, photographs and extensive notes, this revised edition is also expanded with a new introduction by Eastern Front authority A.S. Hamilton, author of The Oder Front series published by Helion.
