|Description||A tremendous best-seller and critical success in France and Germany, the Phoenix Press edition has a new introduction by Doris Lessing. A young man with a French father but a German mother is inducted into the Wermacht in the summer of 1942. He could just as easily have become a French soldier. Following his initial excitement, the book becomes a horrifying chronicle of misery, cold, fear, starvation and disillusionment. The Forgotten Soldier is one of those few classic accounts of an individual's experience of an international anguish. The single most harrowing and incredible account of war that you are ever likely to read.|
|Author Biography||See opposite. '...there was a war, and I married it because there was nothing else when I reached the age of falling in love...Suddenly there were two flags for me to honour...I entered the service, dreamed and hoped. I also knew cold and fear in places never seen by Lili Marlene. A day came when I should have died, and after that nothing seemed very important. So I have stayed as I am, without regret, separated from the normal human condition.' - Guy Sajer|
