I am begging here, I am trying frantically to remember the name and author of a book (yep - this is a pretty long shot so far ). Its a humorous book about WW2, written by a German soldier (semi autobiographical). I remember that the first book in the series was called "Gunner xxxx" (can't remember the name of the soldier it was about) and it was set in Germany, and the second darker one was when he was on, I think, the Russian front. I think he died after the second one was written. Now the only thing I can narrow this down to is that the author's surname almost certainly began with a K or an L. Any mind reading genii out there who might from this very obscure description be able to identify it? Please forgive me for being a bimbo girly, and allow for the fact I last read this book 22 years ago.
