Ein Kriegsfreiwilliger und Spätheimkehrer berichtet (Deutsch) Gebundenes Buch

Groß, Walther: A volunteer and late returnee reports

The memories of the former Obersturmführer of the 1st SS Panzer Division Leibstandarte-SS Adolf Hitler (LAH) and late returnee Walther Groß give a detailed insight into his war and prison years. The later Brigadier General of the Austrian Armed Forces takes the reader with his excitingly written biography to the military-historical focal points of the Second World War.

We accompany the author, who was active in the Hitler Youth in Vienna, from his training as an anti-aircraft artillery man in the barracks in Berlin-Lichterfelde and at the anti-aircraft artillery school I in Rerik in Mecklenburg, through his first war effort in the Balkans and in Greece (1941) to the SS Junkerschule Bad Tölz (1942), then on to Normandy and back to the Eastern Front (Battle of Kharkov, 1943), to finally witness its deployment in the Reich Air Defense near Berlin (1944) and the tragic final battle in and around Vienna.

In the second part of his book, loosened up with numerous pictures and documents, Walther Groß tells us about his eight and a half years of suffering through Soviet prisoners of war and Gulag camps until he can finally return home in 1953, where his beloved wife Pauli and him still love him unknown daughter Karin and his parents are expecting.

If you want to judge from an objective perspective about the reviled and slandered generation of our fathers and grandfathers, you cannot avoid this book. Walther Groß got to know Germany's opponents in the west and east as they were real. His book is both a memory, a legacy and a reminder.
