Heinrich Gerlach served as a lieutenant in the 14th Panzer Division at Stalingrad. Wounded and then captured by the Soviets, he wrote Breakout at Stalingrad while being held in captivity in the USSR. He died in 1991.
'Gerlach records the lives and feelings of soldiers of all ranks' Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. 'Anyone who wants an idea of what Stalingrad was really like should read this book' Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. 'This excellent book will shine a light on the horrors of the Eastern Front for a new generation of English-speaking readers ... An absolute gem of a book' Soldier magazine. 'All this material is so deftly handled and well constructed that it is astonishing that Breakout at Stalingrad is Gerlach's first attempt at fiction' The Sunday Times. 'Few novels contain such an extraordinary story behind their publication as this one ... A remarkable find' The Times. 'Gerlach was among the wounded [at Stalingrad] and his truly magnificent novel [...] is a devastating account of the appalling privations suffered by the German army, left to their fate by the German army, left to their fate by the foundering, over-stretched Fatherland. A masterpiece' Mail on Sunday. 'One of the greatest novels of the Second World War' The Times.
