3.0 out of 5 stars First in series 14 Oct 2008
By H. T. Davies VINE VOICE
This may be the third book in the reprinted series but was the first to be published in the original series back in the 1970s - hence its being set in 1940. Note to publishers - what the hell is a Tiger I doing on the cover in 1940?

Story introduces all the characters who will go through the series, the Butcher, the Vulture, and of course old Kuno von Dodenburg himself, a mere lieutenant in this one if I remember, and describes the storming of the Belgian fortress of Eben Emael which in fact fell to a paratroop attack I think.

If you like your war stories simple and your characeters stock - look no further. Useful table of UK, Wehrmacht and SS ranks in the original copy. Don't know if this is in the reprint.

3.0 out of 5 stars To War, Dogs! 18 July 2011
In SS PANZER BATTALION the anti-heroes of the Waffen SS Assault Regiment Wotan finds themselves training for a special mission in the invasion of France 1940. The mission is eventually revealed to be the attack on the Belgian fortress of Eben Emael, where Wotan will provide the support of numbers and tanks to the German Airborne troops who are to land on top of the fortress by glider before attacking the supposedly impregnable fortress with the new shaped charges.

This is the first of the infamous Wotan books and begins with a Flashman-esque publishers note claiming (quite falsely) that this book was based on the real-life memoirs of the Waffen SS officer Kuno von Dodenberg, a justification never used again in any of the following Wotan books. The book is split fairly evenly into an introduction, with Wotan in training, before they are sent to the front line for the second half of the book to carry out their mission. This is standard Kessler fare; a rollicking mix of war, sex and humour perfectly suited to any juvenile.
