'Fighting in Hell' compiles four firsthand accounts detailing the German campaign on Russia during World War II. These documents were originally published by the US Army, who after the war commissioned German prisoners to detail their experiences during the war, in an effort to understand German war strategies and tactics.
The accounts presented here detail a never before seen perspective on the Russian campaign. The soldiers reveal how the soldiers sent to Russia were neither trained nor equipped to withstand the full fury of the elements on the Eastern front. The German war in Russia was so brutal in all its extremes that all past experiences paled beside it. Everything in Russia from the land, to the climate, to the distances and above all the people, were harder, harsher, more unforgiving and more deadly than anything the average German soldier had ever faced before.
One panzer-grenadier who fought in the West and in Russia summed it up best when he said In the West war was the same honorable old game: nobody went out of his way to be vicious, and fighting stopped often by five in the afternoon. But in the East, the Russians were trying to kill you all the time.

While not every title we publish becomes a 'New York Times' bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.'
