Publisher's Summary

It is freezing 38 degrees. Stalingrad, the winter of 1942-1943. A chilling wind sweeps over the plains, slinging ice crystals into our faces. We are marching past thousands of frozen bodies. The SS-general is marching in front of the convoy, silently and withdrawn. He is angry. We realized that a while back. A fanatic who wishes to die in battle. And the SS-general wants to take as many to die with him as possible.

"MOVING STUDY IN THE STALINGRAD CAMPAIGN... POWERFUL, MERCILESS PORTRAYAL OF THE NIGHTMARES OF THE WAR" GLASGOW DAILY RECORD, SKOTLAND

Sven Hazel 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. n

not to fond of the British accent

The story line is okay until the narrator starts speaking in a British accent...... It's a German war novel and all of the sudden he starts with all of that..... If I wanted that, I would have bought a British war novel.

Worst narration I have ever suffered through!

This narrator is utterly bizarre!
Where did he learn English?
Actually I should wonder.... has he learnt English?
NO ONE has ever pronounced Dachau like this muppet!
Da-Chow!
I kid you not!!!
As for the rest of his faux pas.....
Fieldwebble, Feld-Weeble!
WTF? Make yer damn mind up chap!!
As for the rest of this mess
Steppe = Shhh-tep!
Ruined! Off for a refund 👍

A Bad Narrator

The Narrator, was really bad.
he was using British dialogue for what is a German soldier, talking about the German Army in world war 2.
West Country or London, etc.
They German, not British
