History DocumentariesWe will look today at the diary of Lieutenant Brand, an officer of the Wehrmacht. His diary goes from June 28, 1943. The year he considers “the darkest year in all German history”. And such observations are not unreasonable: the great military failures on the Eastern front accompanied by the massive bombardment of large German cities by British-American aviation. The result was huge civilian losses and severe destructions. The diary shows well the decline in soldiers’ morale caused by these and related events. There was a visible shadow of disaster over Germany.
