    I loaned this from the Manchester Library and just renewed it. I'm not much of a short story reader but Heinrich Boll always seems to be an exception. So far the stories carry the weight of experience. Boll captures the human condition under extreme circumstances.Sometimes comical, other times surreal, and always with a compassion that has both understanding and integrity.Maybe one day I'll learn the German language and read his works in his native tongue. As for the present I will be content to [...]

    Germany from the everyday soldiers perspective during WW2. Bleak but probably very accurate. the thread that ran through the thoughts of those fighting for but not buying into the dream of National Socialism? "just make it stop" - I'd like to read more Boll and find out what else he had to say

    This a terrific albeit depressing collection of short stories about WWII from the German perspective. Very real and human honest look at what regular Germans may have gone through during that heady time.

    Böll's short story collection is a moving piece portraying everyday Germans during WWI and post-war. Like his novels, many of these stories were profound and left me so preoccupied with what I just read, that I was unable to immediately continue on to the next story.

    A brilliant collection of short stories about being a soldier and about being a human being. The stories are quite dark, but so well written that the reader feels compelled to continue. The stories are set during WWII, written by Heinrich Boll, who served in the German Army on both the Eastern and Western Fronts. His stories are not about being German so much as about being human. Themes include: fear, hope, despair, the essential desire for human contact, longing for the familiar, adjustment po [...]

    Master of the perfect short story. Heartbreaking and poignant tales giving the German (pacifist) point of view to WWI and WWII.

    A fantastically bleak collection of short stories written just after the Second World War. Böll does a great job exploring life in Germany during and after a rather dark period. B+.

    Please take a look at my review of Boll's "A Soldier's Legacy" for a comparative review of these two fine books.
