Book Description

1 Nov 2007 Cassell Military Paperbacks

The Russian Officer falls forward and I sink my teeth into his throat. Blood runs down over my face but I don't notice it. I am fighting for my life.

The 27th Penal Regiment are veterans of the frontline.

But when Hitler's war takes them through Greece, Yugoslavia and Albania, they are entirely unprepared for what awaits them. And when the water rations run out, they are willing to commit murder just for a drink.

He did his compulsory year's military service in the Danish forces in 1936 and then, facing unemployment, joined the German army. He served throughout World War II on all fronts except North Africa. When the war ended in 1945 he was transferred between Russian, American and French prison camps, and upon returning to Denmark, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for treason. He began writing Legion of the Damned during his time as a prisoner of war. His fourteen World War II books, which draw on his own encounters and experiences as a soldier, have sold over 53 million copies worldwide and have been published in more than 50 countries. He peacefully passed away in Barcelona in 2012, where he had resided since 1964.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable lies 28 Feb 2008
Format:Paperback
When I first read Hassel in the 70's I was really hooked. Then having read all the then available books I forgot about him. A couple of months ago I came across him here at Amazon and bought the first 3 to re-read and also "The Bloody Road To Death" as the setting for this one mentions Greece (where I live). I was appalled at the gross inaccuracy of this book's setting! They should have used a geographical atlas and done some research...

Conclusion: Hassel is enjoyable to read but the "historical facts" are really too fictional to even ignore! Research about Hassel verifies in my mind that the accusations of a fake are all true. His "autobiography" as presented in his books is as true as.... Lobsang Rampa's!

However I must concede that his descriptions of war are very realistic and accurate enough (i.e. horrifically realistic although historically very inaccurate) and make for enjoyable reading - for which reason I will probably be getting the next batch in the near future.

Hassel? Enjoy the reading but don't believe a word !

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor read compared to his other books 30 Dec 2013

Very disjointed story, one of Sven Hassel's books I have found difficult to follow, unrealistic and lacked continuity.
I couldn't agree more with Bookworms review dated 6th June 2012.

5.0 out of 5 stars A+++ 7 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Read about a factual based but fictional aspect from a german soldier's perspective. Fascinating and Sven Hassel manages to draw you in and keep you addicted! The only shame about all of his books is that they are not in historical order and the characters get a bit confusing as they are out of time sync.
