After suffering through a horrible winter against apparently endless Russian reserves, his division went on the offensive again, this time on the northern wing of "Case Gelb," the German drive toward Stalingrad. In these journals, attacks and counterattacks are described in "you are there" detail, as Roth wrote privately, as if to keep himself sane, knowing that his honest accounts of the horrors in the East could never pass through Wehrmacht censors.
When the Soviet counteroffensive of winter begins, his unit is stationed alongside the Italian 8th Army, and his observations of its collapse, as opposed to the reaction of the German troops sent to stiffen its front, are of special fascination. Hans Roth was doubtlessly working on a fourth journal before he was reported missing in action in July during the battle known as the Destruction of Army Group Center.

Because of his diaries his child, grandchildren and generations to come will have a tiny glimpse into the life of this man.
For this, I am truly grateful. May these diaries prompt the reader to think about how they too can leave a legacy for those who come after them. Mom… to you, may you one day read the words of your father in this book, and may it bring a deep peace that makes your heart complete.

War stories have always fascinated me. As a young boy, I would sit in front of the television for hours, completely mesmerized by old black and white footage of World War I and World War II. But never could I have imagined that a firsthand account of World War II, which no movie or footage could match, was collecting dust in my very own home. My mother grew up during the s and 40s and has always been reluctant to tell me, my brother, and my sister anything about her childhood in wartime Germany.
It was with the same apprehension that she handed me the set of three diaries, in perfect condition. They were written in German, which I could not read, so I had the first five pages translated as soon as possible. I could hardly wait to see what the diaries contained—and the results were nothing short of amazing. I was holding a firsthand account of brutality, carnage and death, combined with the hope that, one day, life would return to the way it was before the war. A grandfather I would never have the privilege to know, except through the contents of his diaries.
Hans Roth was in his early thirties when he was drafted into the German Army. His life had previously consisted of all a young man could dream of. He was the owner of a successful graphic design office in downtown Frankfort, husband to a lovely wife, and father of a beautiful, five-year-old daughter named Erika. His wife, my grandmother, was forced to work in an ammunition factory, as were many other German women during the war.
They were sometimes left there for days at a time, so children were left alone at home to fend for themselves.
