Willi: Diary of a Young Lieutenant  

By Michelle Kaiser

The book: A personal history of World War II

A diary, containing eye-witness reports of a young German officer stationed on WWII’s Russian front in 1941/42, was re-discovered in a safe where it was stored for sixty years.

Canadian author Michelle Kaiser lovingly compiled these notes into a personal – not political – documentary of the events, people, and places of the Russian campaign. The facts are confirmed by previously published British and American historians and excerpts from the diaries of several German generals.

This fast paced, gripping, and sometimes heart wrenching story keeps readers mesmerized. Maps, footnotes and illustrations help to bring everything to life.
