Soldier X

by Don Wulffson

This is a work of fiction based on the lives of two very remarkable people. Though names, dates, and places have been altered whenever necessary, the story is not only true, but also loosely parallels the experience of an estimated thirty thousand German soldiers during World War II on the Eastern Front. A great many were trapped behind Russian lines. Some of the wounded were given medical attention; others were literally thrown out of Russian hospitals and left to die. A great many - wounded or not - were executed; some were imprisoned and enslaved. A few were able to blend into Russian society or flee to neutral, friendly nations.
