|I am searching for the titles of the earliest (pre-1960) German soldier memoirs (or similar works written from the German perspective) that were available in the US in English. Any help would be greatly appreciated.|

|You left out my favorite book entitled, "Enemies Are Human" |
by Reinhold Pabel. (Published in 1955) It is the memoir of a German soldier who fought on the Russian Front, was captured in Italy, escaped from a POW camp in Illinois in 1945, owned a Chicago bookstore, got married, and was caught by the FBI in 1953.

What a great list of WW2 books featuring soldiers fighting in the east.
I went through the complete list and now 7 of them are in my basket on AMAZON and ABE book account.
I have purchased around 300 books in the last 3 years mostly about WW2 and if you want my recommendations just ask.
