If you're looking for a recounting of the goings on at Auschwitz, look elsewhere

This book is hardly about the horrors inside the gates of Auschwitz, but is more about the man's military career. The first chunk of the book is about his experience in war, and if you like those kind of biographies then go for it. The portion of the book where he actually recounts seeing brutality in Auschwitz is very short. He swaps places with a man who he knew as Hans, a Jew who was imprisoned in Auschwitz when he was a POW outside of Auschwitz, so that he could get a better look at what went on inside. But, he hardly detailed what he saw. And I wouldn't really call it "breaking in," he donned the stripped uniform and shuffled in with no real purpose other than witnessing what went on there. It was a big disappointment for me. I thrive on Holocaust memoirs, and this was not what it was advertised as.
