»Willi Heinrich (1920-2005) was a German author and soldier. During the Second World War he fought in the 101st Jäger Division, which suffered massive losses on the Eastern Front, and his combat experiences inspired his first successful novel, Das geduldige Fleisch (1955), published in English translation as The Willing Flesh (1956) in the United Kingdom and as Cross of Iron (1957) in the United States. He later wrote a series of popular genre novels and potboilers in the 1970s and 1980s.« -- More information: Wikipedia
