Blood Red Snow: The Memoirs of a German Soldier on the Eastern Front

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Günter K. Koschorrek

Narrated By: Nigel Patterson

Date: July 2018

Duration: 9 hours 42 minutes

Summary:

Gunter Koschorrek wrote his illicit diary on any scraps of paper he could lay his hands on. As keeping a diary was strictly forbidden, he sewed the pages into the lining of his thick winter coat and deposited them with his mother on infrequent trips home on leave. The diary went missing and it was when he was reunited with his daughter in America some forty years later that it came to light and became Blood Red Snow.

The author was a keen recruit at initial training and his excitement at the first encounter with the enemy in the Russian Steppe is obvious. The horror and confusion of fighting in the streets of Stalingrad are brought to life by his descriptions of the others in his unit; their differing manners and techniques for dealing with the squalor and death. He is also posted to Romania and Italy, assignments he remembers fondly compared to his time on the Eastern Front.

This book stands as a memorial to the huge numbers on both sides who did not survive and is, over five decades later, the fulfillment of a responsibility he feels to honor the memory of those who perished. Gunter K. Koschorrek was a machine-gunner on the Russian front in WWII. He lives in Germany, having retired from his job as managing director of a sales company.

    This book was incredible. Amazing to hear a first hand account of someone who was really there. The book holds your interest from first to last. Excellent narration with flawless pronunciation of German words. Would highly recommend to history buffs.

    Fantastic book! Unfortunately a terrible narrator can make or break a book.. HOWEVER, This book is Read by far and away one of the best foreign language narrators in the business! Do yourself a favor and listen to this book and the other German/Russian military memoirs he has Narrated.. You will not be disappointed..
