I am going to start reading *Alles Umsonst* as soon as I get home. I appreciate your review.
Continuing my eccentric reading habits, I'm now about halfway through Brian Aldiss's *The Twinkling of an Eye: My Life as an Englishman.* Born in 1925, he is not much older than Kempowski. He served in the British Army in Burma. He is best known for his science fiction writing. I find him a fascinating character. And there are some parallels between his life and Kempowski's, strangely enough, particularly in the virtually routine brutalization of children in those days, especially boys.
