Abstract

An investigation conceived in terms of the history of experience, which also does full justice to the methodological challenges of this genre. The study is based on 39 letter series and comprises a total of 2749 letters from World War II. Since the author also makes comparative cross-connections with field post letters from World War I, his study is based on almost five thousand war letters. Certainly, despite this number, one cannot speak of representativeness in the statistical sense, but through his reflective and, moreover, productive handling of the sources, Latzel succeeds in presenting a convincing and sophisticated history of the war 'from below'.
