By Felix Römer
17 Millionen »ganz normale Männer« kämpften während des Zweiten Weltkriegs in Hitlers Armee. Erstmals zeigt sie der Historiker Felix Römer nicht als uniforme Masse, sondern als individuelle Einzelne: Wir sehen den Krieg mit den Augen der Soldaten. Zwischen 1942 und 1945 hörte der US-Nachrichtendienst im Geheimlager castle Hunt bei Washington mehrere Tausend deutsche Kriegsgefangene heimlich ab. Zehntausende Abhörprotokolle blieben erhalten, die erst jetzt, nach über sechzig Jahren, entdeckt wurden. Der Historiker Felix Römer hat diesen Aktenbestand als Erster ausgewertet und eröffnet mit seiner examine eine völlig neue Sicht auf den Krieg: Unter »Kameraden« erzählen sich die Soldaten ihre Fronterlebnisse, sie prahlen mit »Heldentaten« und schrecklichen Verbrechen. Sie zeigen ihre geheimen Ängste und ihre wahre Haltung zu Hitler. Die dazu überlieferten Biografien machen die Lebensumstände und Handlungsspielräume, das Denken und Handeln des Einzelnen konkret. Mit diesem einzigartigen fabric bekommt die uniforme Wehrmacht zum ersten Mal ein individuelles Gesicht.
