Publisher's Summary

We hear the crawlers closing in. A T-34. They must have seen us, Tiny whispers. - Stay low until it is right here, then we run! The horrible clattering of the crawler comes closer and closer. I know this fear, creeping up the spine. It will mean certain death if they run just one second too soon. How we get up, I don't know, the legs move automatically. The tank wiggles over the hole and crushes everything in it. Then it rumbles on...

Sven Hassel was sent to a penal battalion as a private in the German forces. Intensely and with brutal realism, he portrays the cruelty of the war, the Nazi crimes and the crude and cynical humor of the soldiers. With more than 50 million sold copies, this is one of the world's best selling war novels.

Diehard Sven Hassel fan

I love all his books. First two are the best. Grim, dark and entertaining. Opens your eyes to the brutality of the times. Life is cheap and people have become indifferent. We all know the nazis were cruel but Hassel's books brings a new level of darkness with some black humour too. Definitely anti war.
