Danger was forgotten, death was forgotten, the war was forgotten. They only knew they had to kill... The figures in khaki were no longer soldiers, no longer men.

Sven Hassel and his comrades are once more hurled into the ferocity of the frontline.

The Eastern Front is a sight of unprecedented destruction. The soldiers there - the tank battalions of Hitler's penal regiments - are considered expendable by the German high command.

Treated like animals, they learn to live like animals, to fight like beasts. The only other option is to die a bloody death...

This is a gripping testament to the soldiers sacrificed on the Russian Front.

About the Author:

Born in 1917 in Fredensborg, Denmark, Sven Hassel joined the merchant navy at the age of 14. He did his compulsory year's military service in the Danish forces in 1936 and then, facing unemployment, joined the German army. He served throughout the Second World War on all fronts except North Africa. When the war ended in 1945 he was transferred between Russian, American and French prison camps, and upon returning to Denmark, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for treason. He began writing LEGION OF THE DAMNED during his time as a prisoner of war. His 14 Second World War books, which draw on his own encounters and experiences as a soldier, have sold over 53 million copies worldwide and have been published in more than 50 countries. He peacefully passed away in Barcelona in 2012, where he had resided since 1964.

Review:

Hassel's books of war are the most powerful I have ever read

Sven Hassel is one of the best European novelists around, with a flair for excitement that has few equals―STAFFORDSHIRE EVENING STANDARD

In essence this is an expose of the absurdity of war, and a moving plea for peace. As such, it takes its rank with far milder books, such as ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT―NEWSDAY

He is graphic, at times brilliantly so, but never brutal or bitter. He is, too, a first rate storyteller―WASHINGTON POST
