Servants of Evil

ISBN: 0-7603-2171-X
Review Date:

Well, here is a book that I read a long time ago and must of forgot to post my review, so here it is.

This book has 8 chapters that covers the land, air, and sea war from the beginning to the end, with the last chapter covering the POWs, all from the German perspective. The book describes the war with both general narratives as well as specific details of battles, the latter supported actual German veteran accounts. All theatres of the war are covered from all elements of the Armed Forces. These veteran accounts are what make the book. They talk about Soviet artillery barrages, nerves during a depth charge attack, and freezing on the Russian steppes. There are also a few different pictures that I have not seen before, many from the veterans' private collections. The veteran accounts are well laid out and are told in a straight forward way; nothing is hidden.

Some of the battles are Stalingrad, Dunkirk, Demjansk Pocket. You also get to read on what the Wehrmacht soldiers thought of the Waffen SS, or the Luftwaffe thought of the British or Soviet pilots. The U-Boat sailors talk about the Happy Times off of North America and also about the crippling losses in the latter half of the war.

I could not put the book down and recommend it for sure.
