Having had yet another PM from Mr Westemeier, suggesting that I am having "fun", I'd like to assure anyone labouring under that impression that I have nothing personal against Jens Westemeier.
Well, it is too bad that Mr Westemeier is suggesting that you are having "fun" as I don't think and don't feel it is the case at all, moreover it is not a very nice attitude from him if he suggested that. I think Paddy's post are respectful of jen's work and I would add that he did a great job at finding factual informations and that is all to his credits. Now I have the feeling that Mr Westemeier might have been too much involved emotionnally for whatever reason in it's book and that is where some peoples clearly disagree with his conclusion wich show some strong and definitive judgements. The guy (Peiper) was certainly a very complex mind and it is certainly very hard to find what he really was or wasn't. Now let's not forget that a guy (whoever) should be judge innocent as far as there are no strong evidence of it's culpability.
I would conclude that a book wich show Peiper's life in a only negativ or positiv way can not IMO be an objectiv bio. things are not as simple as that unfortunately and I see this everyday in my job, and Peiper's life is certainly no exception to that.
How about reinstating Pzmeyer2 and Ragin' Cajun. A forum without dissent isn't a forum.
I agree and second it.
I'll second that
Pzmeyer2 rewiew is well worth a read. If Jason pipes is around maybe he could say something...
