Veteran Interviews...

As with any research one may do, it is always better to get the information from those who were there.  With this in mind, we have posted various interviews with soldiers who fought in the German army during WWII.  We know how hard it is to get this type of information and hope you find this useful in you research to better your impression as well as to keep their stories alive. They as with any veteran, should not be forgotten.
