Frontsoldaten : The German Soldier in World War II
by Stephen G. Fritz 
The experience of the British and American common soldier in World War II has been extensively  studied. Not so, at least in English, that of his principal opponent, the German Landser (infantryman). Fritz draws on both published and unpublished material, little of it previously translated, to make up for the deficiency. The German soldier survived far more rigorous training than his Allied counterparts (which explains much of his superior proficiency). Booklist

German Infantryman at War 1939-1945 (At War)
by George Forty (Editor)
Book Description: This book looks at the lot of the average Landser, the German "Grunt", who fought through Blitzkrieg, in the Western Desert, and in the horrific frozen wastes of Russia against the most implacable of foes. 

Most of the photographs in this book come from private collections and have not been published before, many from Feldwebel Gerhard Sandmann who joined the German Army at Northeim in September 1939 and fought from May 9, 1940, through Belgium, Holland, and France. He was then involved in the capture of the Channel Islands, saw service on the Eastern Front, was wounded, and convalesced in Berlin before seeing service in the Occupation Army in Holland. He was captured by the U.S. Army in Belgium in 1944. 

WWII German Infantryman at War uses experiences such as these to evoke what World War II was like at the sharp end by way of the soldiers' own stories and images.

Hitler's Mountain Troops : Fighting at the Extremes
by James Lucas
Warfare in the mountains, with its extremes of temperature and treacherous terrain, is unique and difficult. Hitler's Gebirgsjaeger, specially chosen troops of men who usually came from the Alpine regions, frequently succeeded in winning (or at least escaping) where others would have failed. Using anecdotes from surviving veterans, and photographs of men, landscapes, and weapons, follow the troops from Poland down to Tunisia, chronicling their excellence, dedication, and esprit de corps.
