If you want to get into some real laugh out loud stuff look at the Flashman novels by George MacDonald Fraser.
The Forgotten Soldier by Guy Sajer. I first read many years ago. Fact, or fiction, it is a good story.
The Cross Of Iron by Willi Heinrich is also a classic.
Wilbur Smith Is always good, two of my favorite novels by him are Cry Wolf and Shout At The Devil.

A work of fiction about the First World War. The storey follows the raising, training and destruction of a battalion. The author interviewed WW1 veterens before writing it.
This is such good fiction that I've seen it quoted as a source on a serious WW1 site.

Finally got my hands on Chieftains - highly recommended even if some of the hardware is wrong - highly depressing too, but not to a Red Army level.
