The refusal of the author's unit to replace the army salute with the Nazi Party one, as directed in July 1944, shows the growing dissent of ordinary German soldiers and also illustrates the conflict that loyal and patriotic soldiers faced as they became disillusioned with Nazism. Explaining his thoughts and motivations at the time, this memoir follows a German soldier's experience on the Russian front from 1941–1944 as well as describing the chaos of post-war Germany.
