enormous proportions one of the longest and largest ever waged but one simply has to wonder why, given the author s obvious skill with words, he could not have chosen a title which wasapropos Be that as it may, William Hermanns first hand account is a chilling, fast paced read which traces his journey from an idealistic German youth with visions of honor and glory, and ambitions to become an officer, to a defeated, disillusioned, contrite prisoner of war The book end with Hermanns letter to the Kaiser, written from a French POW camp, in which he minces no words in accusing his supreme commander of the most myopic and petty sorts of power lust As a protest against war in general, The Holocaust is as effective as any autobiographical tale of modern warfare can be, and it is significant that it was written at the height of the Vietnam War, when Hermanns had settle in the U.S as a writer and academic Still, one cannot help but wish he had drawn a stronger connection to the subsequent events which allowed for the ascendency of Adolph Hitler, the rise to power of Nazi party, and The Holocaust, events which, after all, did directly impact Hermanns and his family he was forced to flee Germany as an intellectual enemy of the state while his sister, to whom this volume is dedicated, lost her life in a Nazi concentration camp Great story of a young man coming to terms with how wrong war is.
