3.0 out of 5 stars Devils Guard - The Real Story, 8 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Devil's Guard: The Real Story (Kindle Edition)
I picked this e-book because I had read a book of the same title many years ago. This author claims this is the real story of ex members of the waffen SS who joined the foreign legion after the second world war and fought for the French in Indochina. Although I enjoyed this book I'm far from convinced that it is the real story! The book centres around a platoon of mainly Germans who manege to kill hundreds or more of Vietminh main force regiments near Hanoi, rescue a French babe with whom the Sergeant fall sin love and manages to have sex in a harbour area amongst his men during an operation. It claims they captured and released General Giap following a raid on his headquarters. In the whole book; only one of the German in the platoon dies and they seem to continue to expend countless amounts of several types of ammo natures as they win every contact with the enemy. Well take it from me, someone who has operated in the Jungle in patrol, Platoon, Company and Battalion sizes groups, casualties and ammo re-sup are a massive problem. So all this taken into account, this is just another story of a rumour that was doing the rounds in the 1960's of Germans who fought hard for for French colonialism.
