I just finished reading "Visions from a foxhole" by William Foley and I have to say its brilliant! Its absolutly on par with books like "the old breed". If you havn´t read it make sure you do! One of the most well written and fascinating memoirs I have ever read. I can´t praise this book enought!

Latly I have been reading almost exlusivly memoirs and am looking for more tips! Some books I can recommend that people might have overlooked:
"Twilight of the gods". Not very well written and somewhat irratic. Bombastic language, but gives a good insight into the mind of a convinced Nazi during the war. Swedish volonteer in "Nordland"
"Black Edelweiss" Excellent on all accounts! 6. SS Nord
"Soldat" Sigried Knappe. Also very well written about a artillary man rising through the rank to the end in Berlin as a Staff officer!

Any tips appriciated!
