A Practical Guide To The Horrors of War, 11 Dec. 2003
Sven's writing is stupendous! First read his books whilst serving as a soldier in Germany bombing around in armoured personnel carriers with Tanks supporting us - back in the 1970's His portrayal of war is so realistic and was then easy to relate to as we played soldiers. Years later reading his books again I'm struck by his characterisation and how well developed they are as they continue to hold on to life and dish out death. The hardships that generation went through still amaze me and how an evil little Dictator could unleash such immense terror on so many people.
