For decades after 1945, it was generally believed that the German army, professional and morally decent, had largely stood apart from the SS, Gestapo, and other corps of the Nazi machine. Ben Shepherd draws on a wealth of primary sources and recent scholarship to convey a much darker, more complex picture. For the first time, the German army is examined throughout the Second World War, across all combat theaters and occupied regions, and from multiple perspectives: its battle performance, social composition, relationship with the Nazi state, and involvement in war crimes and occupation.

Wow... this was the most thorough and intriguing reading I have ever listened to. Anyone interested in the German Army during the Second World War will be overwhelmingly impressed by this! I HIGHLY recommend it.
Loved it..... although it’s hard to fathom the human race reached these lows.
