The story paints a good picture of one German soldiers personal experiences on the Eastern Front. It is by no means is a chronicle of both sides of the story. With that said, the use of a VERY British Narrator takes away from the effectiveness of the story. I haven't read the actual novel, but the British accent and constant use of colloquialisms like "Bloke" and "Chap" ruins the effectiveness. A Narrator should be an Actor and this role called for a German (or a Narrator who can pull of a German accent at the very least).
