Praise

“Memorable. . . . This book deserves your time because of its fascinating story, plainly but sharply told, of an individual in an extraordinary situation.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Remarkable. . . . An astonishing memoir. . . . Of real significance to Second World War historians.”
Daily Telegraph (London)

“Boeselager’s book doesn’t tarry in the realm of might-have-been. Instead, it explores reality—the importance of making accessible to future generations the full truth of history.”
The Christian Science Monitor

“An extraordinary memoir. . . . A one-of-a-kind eyewitness account, essential for students of the Third Reich and all champions of freedom against tyranny.”
Booklist

“Celebrates a long-since-vanished generation of scholar-warriors. . . . von Boeselager [was] both intelligent and honourable.”
—Daily Mail (London)

“[A] brisk, illuminating description of how one German solider struggled to reconcile his profound religious and moral sensibility with his cavalryman’s patriotic code of honour and thereby became part of this conspiracy.”
—Daily Express (London)
