Nobel Prize winning author Günter Grass' autobiography causing controversy because of his admission of volunteering for the submarine corps at the age of 15 and then being drafted into the Waffen SS, the combat force of the SS, in 1944 when he was 17. Much of the German novelist's work has dealt with the idea of morally dealing with one's past, in this case Germany's collective conscious.
