In 1962, 50 years after he initially enlisted in the German Army, Nagel and his account of military life, and death, during the years 1912 to 1921. Based for the most part on his war diaries, Nagel's narrative should not be viewed as a work of pretentious scholarship, to be compared with other accounts written by veterans with more literary flaIr. As he states in his introduction, Nagel originally was induced to begin writing because, one day maybe my grandchildren would like to read what grandfather thought and did in those days. Nonetheless, Nagel's wartime memoirs are laced with candor, honesty, pathos and humor that still typify the man today.
