One of the more interesting stories of the Eastern Front is East Prussia and how the German’s managed to extricate huge numbers of troops and civilians from encircling Russians. That’s the core of this hugely entertaining account from a Jagdpanther commander and then infantryman in the defence of Danzig.

It’s full of detail of the collapse of Nazi Germany as troops retreated, knowing that they were facing defeat, while trying to stay alive in the face of the Red Army. There’s a glossy photo section in the middle adding an extra layer of interest.
