New eastern front memoir:"Until the eyes shut"by Andreas Hartinger

Just finished reading a great eastern front memoir: "Until the eyes shut" by Andreas Hartinger.
Once you start reading you will not be able to put it down, well written and a brutally honest and emotional touching account.
It is about a simple Austrian farm boy caught up it the world wind of the eastern front meat grinder.He fought for 2 years with the 3rd mountain division as a MG42 machine gunner.Excellent descriptions of the inner workings of a German machine gun squad.He describes the emotional bonds and comradeship that can only be formed in brutal close combat.The explicit trust in your fellow solider knowing he's got your back every
time.You also see what a human being can endure and still survive.After the war he was imprisoned in Russia until 1948.
My only criticism is that there is no hard cover version.
