Shocking testimony to the brutality of war,
This review is from: Legion of the Damned (Sven Hassel War Classics) (Mass Market Paperback)
Sven Hassel tells this story from his own experiences in this account of life as a member of a penal battalion is certainly not for the faint hearted. A brutal account of life on the 'other' side. A must read for all those interested in getting an understanding of what serving in the German Army was like. Moving, shocking and mesmerising.
I first read this book 20 years ago and have just bought a new copy to read it again such is its impact.
