To War, Dogs!,
This review is from: SS Panzer Battalion (Volume 3 Dogs of War Series) (Paperback)
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.
