Well, it sure aint too good!

In general, I dislike Stephen Ambrose's books, as they are way to americanized! Especially the book named "D-Day" which is 95% about the US contribution on Utah and Omaha...

If you want to read about the experiences of German infantrymen in WW II, how they lived and about the overall picture (training, organization, weapons they used etc.), then German Infantryman at War 1939-1945 by George Forty (ISBN 0-7110-2929-6) is the right choice for you.

It contains a lot of pictures (many of them in color) and it's only 128 pages long so it isn't that "heavy" so to speak. It doesn't take any political stance, it just tells the things how they were.

I would have many WW II books to read but I'm too lazy to do that and I just can't sit down & start reading :lookaround:

I'll look up some of those. Right now I'm reading Five Years, Four Fronts. By Major Georg Grossjohann of the Heer. It's his memoirs. Very good book.

I personally thought that band of brothers was one of the best books i have ever read. I will agree that books like d-day are one sided. But of course Ambrose wanted it document just the american side of the battle.
