About This Book

Hitler’s dreams of a Thousand Year Reich may have been crumbling by 1945, but his armed forces were not surrendering. While the Führer fantasized about deploying divisions and armies that had long since ceased to exist, boys, officer cadets, sailors and veterans of the Great War joined the survivors of shattered formations on the front line.A

In Death Was Our Companion, leading historian Tony Le Tissier gives a German perspective to the mayhem and bloodshed of the last months of the Second World War. From teenaged Flak auxiliaries trying to break out of Soviet encirclement to insider accounts of Goebbels’ attempt to orchestrate his own cease-fire, this is fascinating reading for anyone interested in the ordinary soldiers of 1945.
