Walking Away From the Third Reich: A Teenager in Hitler's Army (Hellgate Memories World War II)

In 1941, the brutal war raged in its third year, but from an aristocratic boys school, it seemed like an exciting time for seventeen-year-old Sellier and his friends. They lived in the country that, by all indications, was winning the war. Newspaper headlines told of the latest victories, and pictured a proud Adolf Hitler pinning medals on war heroes. Sellier and his classmates didn`t see this as propaganda, and swelled with pride.   Typical of many teenage boys at the time, Sellier`s fears revolved around the fact that he might miss out on the thrill of victory and glory of being a soldier. When draft cards arrived, the boys hollered for joy. Sellier was thrilled at the thought of becoming a decorated war hero. The future seemed bright, not to mention that he would escape final exams. The reality of being a soldier, however, would nearly devastate Sellier. Yet somehow, through the harsh conditions and brutality that he would experience, Sellier would find himself a hero in a losing battle.
