Can you recommend a contemporary WWII narrative, in english, but written by non-anglo-american authors?

I am interested in reading more about WWII. In particular I am wondering if there are any contemporary books that cover the whole (or at least big parts of) WWII ... but written by people who are neither from Britain nor North America (US, Canada).
The reason is that I am interested in trying to get that alternate perspective that the traditional western sources may not have. For instance any books by soviet, japanese or german sources.
Bonus points if they are currently in print, that can be found at a Barnes & Noble or Chapters.
Thank you in advance
