Heinz G. Konsalik

Heinz G. Konsalik, pseudonym of Heinz Günther (May 28, 1921 – October 2, 1999) was a German novelist. Konsalik was his mother's maiden name.During the Second World War he was a war correspondent, which provided many experiences for his novels.Many of his books deal with war and showed the German human side of things as experienced by their soldiers and families at home, for instance Das geschenkte Gesicht (The bestowed face) which deals with a German soldier's recovery after his sledge ran over an anti-personnel mine and destroyed his face, and how this affected his relationship with his wife at home. It places no judgment on the German position in the war and simply deals with human beings in often desperate situations, doing what they were forced to do under German military law.
