I am not aware of an English translation of this book, which is an absolute shame. People who are not capable of the German language are being withhold a great book about the real life of young male Germans who grew up before and during World War 2, who experienced the power and brainwash of the Hitler Youth and the Nazi propaganda machine.

Werner is one of them and he is not a classic hero and rebel, he is an average guy who feels love, passion, anger, fear and hatred as anybody else. He also has a conscious, which is nothing extraordinary, a conscious that made him make decisions he sometimes regrets afterwards and sometimes does not.

I had to read the book in East German class, where we often had to read books about heroes and horrors that were hard to relate to. This was the first book in school, which I actually loved. I hated the interpretations of the book by of the East German Communist school system, which was in absolute contradiction with what I got out of the book for myself.

I wrote the required essay based on my own opinions and needless to say, I got an F for it. It pulled my grade for the semester down to a C from a B, but I did not care. I explained the teacher that I will not repeat his interpretations, because I have my own very strong opinion about this book. I purchased the book again here while I am living in the U.S., because I had to leave "my" copy behind with my sister when I left.

I am sure that different people will have different experiences with this book and get not the same thing out of it, but one thing I can promise, it will be a strong experience, one way or the other. I hope that somebody will translate this book into English one day.

I was born, raised and educated in the USA. Through my upbringing, I have developed deep sympathy and sorrow for the millions of victims of Nazi aggression and genocidal policies. However, until reading this book, I had seldom been exposed to anything that lead me to extend those feelings, much less empathy and compassion, also to German recruits during World War II.

Young Werner Holt is the equivalent of a high school sophomore when he is called up for active duty. He's just a kid; he's not a fanatic, not a Nazi Party pureblood or SS man. At first, this small-town boy sees active duty as one big, grand adventure, and he's on an enthusiastic high. Then, and over the course of almost the entire book, reality gradually sets in: the reality of the brutality and horror of combat; and the reality of the true, demonic nature and heinous actions of the Nazi regime, along with a growing recognition that he and his age-mates have been manipulated and used to serve the repugnant designs of that regime. The book helps us to grasp what a kid like Werner could realistic have known about the darkest sides of what the Nazis were doing, when and how his suspicions of atrocities might have been transformed into certainties and convictions, and the extent to which he had the needed intellectual tools, mental space and room to manoeuver to respond to that new-found knowledge constructively.

"The Adventures of Werner Holt" is rightfully renowned as a unique, powerful work of anti-war literature. It is also an appeal to societies worldwide (and, indeed, to all of us parents) to develop skills of critical thinking among our youth from a very young age.
