The author recounts his capture by the Nazis, his experiences in prison camp, and the mental strain caused by his imprisonment

This chronological memoir by an ex-French soldier of his four-year captivity by the Nazis is truly a "nightmare." Letulle, a postwar U.S. resident, writes in a simple, rough, yet extremely compelling style. His account is accurately described in Amos Perlmutter's foreword as "Kafkaesque in recitation of the horrors visited on the victims of Nazi terror." It is a grim tale of incredible sufferingsuffocatingly crowded boxcars, cruel working conditions, endless despair, brutality, starvation, etc. The ultimate nightmare is mentalas a hospital assistant Letulle witnessed horrifying human experiments. If further evidence of wartime bestiality is needed, it will be found to a shocking extent in Letulle's recollections of his many places of confinement. Clifton E.

    I met the author many years ago and heard the story first hand. The book was right on mark and actually was therapy for Mr. Letulle.

    I read this book over 20 years ago and have never forgotten it. As others have noted, it is not for the faint of heart, and unless you are prepared for the greatest horrors you will ever hear of, put it down. And I believe all sane people should question themselves before looking into the abyss. And this is a deep, dark abyss. Not merely a first hand account of what has become, regrettably, pat human aggression, this details his time spent as an assistant at a facility that conducted medical experiments. You think you know what you are going to read, but you do not. You have no idea. "Nightmare Memoir" is as real and as dark as it gets.

    Told simply by the author who is not a professional writer. Very good memoir of the horrors that took place during the Holocaust. This book is a testament to the resiliency of the human spirit. No wonder he is still having nightmares.

    This book literally made my stomach sick. The author does a great job in telling the horrors that he endured. That being said, this book is not for the faint of heart. The crimes and experiments done by the Nazis' as relayed in this book are horrific. I would recommend this book to anyone, of age.
