I'm reading a VERY good book right now about a young german soldier. The book is The Forgoten Soldier It follows his life from when he is in training camp in the begining of the war. All his expierences in the russian theater. From Stalingrad to full retreat...and finally his capture by the british. He is enlisted into the army at age 16! I just started the book though so i don't know much about it yet obviosly.
