    This book probably speaks for the majority of German fighting men in World War II, January 19, 2010I purchased this book as a source to peek into the mind of a Waffen SS soldier and determine whether his wartime experience supported the ridiculous stereotype handed down on these men over the decade ruthless, evil kil...

    The writing style of the book seems to lack something, much of the combat is glossed over, the author instead seems to spendtime examining the personal struggle of coming to grips with reality of his service and what his organizatio...

    Incredibly interesting story, written by a very eloquent and clearly intelligent young solider of the Waffen SS Have read plenty of WW2 solider autobiographies, but always from an US Army officer viewpoint so this was really something different.Black Edelweiss covers Johann Voss real name Paul Karl Schmidt and his life in service, beginning with his formative years growing up under the tyranni

    Not your typical World War 2 memoir and a perspective that most Americans might not have been able to see before.

    A heart felt and thoughtful telling of one young man s experiences all before the age of twenty one It is well written, easy to follow with ample explanation and maps At times quite insightful and sometimes very personal and harrowing, both physically mentally, and morally I would recommend this book.Update 14.8.17 The author mentions several times seeing and hearing geese as they were migrating during August One nig

    I enjoyed the blend of his battle experience and his battle of conscience in coming to terms with what the SS did at the concentration camps, Russia and on occasions at the front lines.
