I am looking for books of 1st hand accounts from Axis soldiers in WW2. Non-fiction and non-propaganda. Any nationality except German, preferably Japanese. They seem to be hard to find... anyone know of some good ones? Also looking for books by Russian soldiers.

Oh, there are a lot of them, but written in german.
Try to find:

Hasso G. Stachow, If this be Glory.Publ. 1982. ISBN: 0385159749

It´s the story of a young german soldier on the eastern front, as narrated by himself and written by the author. It is authentic, but not a classical first person account.

I warmly recommend to you : "Le soldat oublié" ("The forgotten soldier") from Guy SAJER, first written in french , about a young french alsacian engaged as rifleman in the Grossdeutschland Division from 42 to 45.

here is a link with it translated :

It Never Snows In September.

An excellent view of Market Garden from the German side.

Sorry, just saw your caveat about nationalities. I'll see what I can dig up
