I bought this book on the pretext that it was a 'True Story', as advertised on the front cover. When you get to read the introduction, he plainly states that he hasn't got the facts at all, nor was he allowed to have a look at any evidence beyond a 'quick dinner and glance at the records'. He says that he writes this book as 'a novel' and has openly made things up where he wants to.
Along with clearly ridiculous errors, such as General Paulus' HQ being right next to the very front line early on in the battle for Stalingrad, Meyer appears to be inventing everything to concoct a pro-Nazi fantasy.
Don't waste your money, unless of course you have a strange sense of humour or a fetish for Nazi fairy tales.
The story jumps from one time during the war to another time in stalingrad. The story is not realistic because of the ease of a Russian woman working for the SS during a skirmish in Stalingrad, also the ease of a Russian officer who helps them during a skirmish. Because the story jumps to Berlin then back to Stalingrad during each chapter, it has a fairly predicatable outcome. The writer seems to have over explained the potential for death in every episode and in my opinion, over explains it, when clearly he informs the reader in a previous part of a chapter that the key figure is in another place and time in the future. The story only covers one Englander within the SS, and with his jumping to Germany and other countries during the war to allegedly recruit POW's to the SS Free Corps, it becomes tedius and frankly a waste of time reading. The ending is also abrupt and disappointing to say the least. I am sure this is based on some truth, with a writers imagination thrown in for good measure. If you like war based stories I think this will disappoint you.
Fiction only in this book - and not that good either.

Once again Eric Meyer has written a good novel about the SS. This time the main character in the story is British, who finds himself in the SS. Read morePublished on 29 Mar. 2014 by Guernsey Donkey
Not a documentary nor a history, but a trashy 1970s style novel based loosely on the fact that this unit did once exist. Read morePublished on 30 Dec. 2013 by H. Lindsay
