A brilliant collection of short stories about being a soldier and about being a human being. The stories are quite dark, but so well written that the reader feels compelled to continue. The stories are set during WWII, written by Heinrich Boll, who served in the German Army on both the Eastern and Western Fronts. His stories are not about being German so much as about being human. Themes include: fear, hope, despair, the essential desire for human contact, longing for the familiar, adjustment post-war, and love. ( )
