At 18, my Grandfather was drafted into the German Army, and served as an ambulance driver in World War One. He wrote down the entire truly bizarre story with a great deal of irony and dark humor. Erwin attempts to escape from military service (to meet his Dutch sweetheart), serves as an accountant in a military-sanctioned Red Cross brothel, was awarded the Iron Cross (for teaching his Sergeant French), and is witness to a butchery of horrific proportions. Erwin’s trials reinforce the insanity of the human condition and yet, no matter how cold, how hungry and how barbaric the world around him, he just kept going.
