This is the same Sven Hassel that I read for the first time when I was 12 years old, falling in love with war stories and the sheer amount of ways you can tell said stories I m happy to go back to him from time to time, because now I also know the historical context of whatever battle he s writing about In this book, D Day made an appearance, and as I ve been to the Normandy war cemetery and read as much as I can on the subject, I can integrate these soldiers in a grander picture The writing is [...]
Quite a nice read Bad guys making their way to survive not caring much for the rules.

I discovered Sven Hassel s many books back in the 1970 s I was in my early twenties, newly married and ready to settle in an armchair and read The War had ended twenty five years previously, my father playing an active part in the fighting, so I was intrigued to get an insight into the War from the other side, get a different view This was long before the wonders of the internet and Kindle I devoured them, bought the paperbacks one after the other, read them all Of course, as sometimes happens, [...]
This is book does not contain so much character description but especially environment description I think we all need those descriptions for the imagination of the scenes This made the book not so fun to read.I may have got attention to this because of I read Trevanian s The Summer of Katya at the same time I read so gorgerous and excellent character and environment descriptions in the scenes in that book.

In this book Hassel returns to the short story format of the earlier books in the series this book is a collection of vignettes, related only in that they all take place in Paris shortly before it s liberation from the occupying German army.In the closing pages Hassel claims the commanding German general did not raze the entire city to the ground, only because he did not receive the necessary tanks and mines in time to do it not at all because he felt Paris actually ought to be spared It may be [...]
The same formula as Wheels of Terror and Legion of the Damned but not quite as good Certainly easy and quick to read because it s a novella size than the other two books, the irony is there, the savagery is there but it s of a lazy effort by the author compared with the other two.Still it s worth reading but I think the author was running out of steam here and reads like fiction than faction because the other books are supposedly based on real experiences, how much is gloss we ll never know b [...]
