Stalingrad 1942 - der 19jährige Alfred Müller ist Angehöriger der 100. Jäger-Division und lernt bei den Kämpfen in der Stadt und um das Werk "Roter Oktober" die Schrecken des Krieges kennen und hassen. Aufgrund seiner Schießfertigkeit avanciert er zum Scharfschützen. Nach der Einkesselung der 6. Armee nimmt das Schicksal seinen Lauf. Der junge Österreicher zieht als Jäger und Gejagter durch die Ruinen der sterbenden Stadt an der Wolga. Seine ständigen Begleiter sind Hunger, Kälte, Elend, Tod und Angst. Der Krieg schlägt täglich hart und erbarmungslos zu. Die Landser verrohen - ihre Hoffnung auf Rettung stirbt. Es gibt letztendlich nur noch zwei Wege, einem leidvollen, düsteren Schicksal zu entrinnen. Entweder man ergattert einen Platz in einem der Flugzeuge aus dem Kessel oder man findet Erlösung durch den Tod. Allgemeine Informationen über das Scharfschützenwesen der Wehrmacht sowie sechs Original-Fotos aus Stalingrad runden diesen Roman ab.

First-hand accounts from veteran snipers demonstrate their skill and extraordinary courage and show why they are still such a vital part of any war.

“Always remember today’s date,” her grandmother said to Irma. “El diez de Mayo”—the tenth of May. After World War II, Peter, a handsome German pilot, met Irma, a beautiful Texan woman of Hispanic descent. It was love at first sight. Their meeting had been prophesized—for Irma by her grandmother and for Peter by a Gypsy—and together the couple would create an extraordinary life. Irma’s Story: American by Birth, Hispanic by Choice chronicles Irma’s life and the experiences of the “Texan Gawendas” during their tenure in the German military in Europe and the United States. Though Irma, accepted as an American while in Europe, faced discrimination in her home country and contended with the challenges of being a military wife, Peter’s love and companionship remained constant. In his second book, Peter B. Gawenda, author of The Children’s War, offers readers an insider’s view of the joys that the marriage of two people—from two completely different worlds—can bring. Presenting the dynamics of racial issues against the backdrop of military life, the captivating story of Irma Lozano de Gawenda depicts a fearless, fiercely loyal woman willing to do anything for her family. Written with a passion that has spanned five decades, Irma’s Story celebrates the strength of an once-in-a-lifetime love.
