"Kirst won an international reputation with the series Null-acht, fünfzehn, a satire on army life centered on Gunner Asch, a private who manages to buck the system. Initially conceived as a trilogy -- 08/15 in der Kaserne (1954), 08/15 im Krieg (1954), 08/15 bis zum Ende (1955) -- the three book narrative was expanded to five with the publication of 08/15 Heute in 1963 and 08/15 in der Partei in 1978. The series follows the career of Asch, a common man in an impossible situation, from the years before World War II, to the Eastern Front, and finally into the world of post-war Germany."--Wikipedia, viewed 16 MAR 2018
