The Revolt of Gunner Asch and Soldiers' Revolt, despite having the word Revolt in their titles, are separate works with different storylines.



This is a historical novel setting out the events which ultimately led to the dismissals of Field Marshal von Blomberg and General von Fritsch, the two most senior German military officers, and Hitler taking over effective control of the German armed forces.
Starting from historical facts, the author fleshes out the human dimension of the personal tragedies of Von Blomberg and Von Fritsch and the corruption and evil inherent to a totalitarian political system.
I found the novel worth reading as an addition to the historical studies of the Nazi era.… (lisätietoja)

Original reviews calling this "the German Catch-22" do a bit of a disservice to the book, as they mislead readers into thinking this is a surreal comic extravaganza like Joseph Heller's monumental work. This book deals indeed with the absurdity ever present in military life, but it does so in a much more realistic and less antic way. Like Heller's Yossarian, Gunner Asch of the German army is acutely aware of the paralyzing stupidity inherent in military bureacracy and sets out to do something individual and self-affirming in opposition. But the adventures of the hero of Hans Hellmut Kirst's novel are mellow and low key by comparison. There is little that is laugh-out-loud funny in this book. Rather it is a gently amusing story, with a compelling, quiet drive that ends in a subtle but very satisfying punchline. I look forward to reading the follow-up books about Asch's further adventures.… (lisätietoja)

När unge Konrad Breitbach gick med i nazistparti trodde många att han hade en skruv lös. Men Orts gruppenleiter Sonnenblum var nöjd. Sonen till han rival Richard Breitbach skulle hjälpa honom att ta makten i staden Gilgenrode.
I själva verket planerade Konrad att bekämpa partiet inifrån. Han hade bara ett vapen, men det behärskade han suveränt - Hitlers "Mein Kampf". Konrad var den ende i staden som hade orkat igenom Hitlers bok, och han läste den som fan läser Bibeln. Men Führerns vilja var lag för hans partikamrater...… (lisätietoja)

Gunner Asch an ordinary, but decent man comes to the end of WWII and gets back to his home town. He had nothing to do with the lynching of an SS general! Nothing at all!
