Summary

Bloody partisan fights rage in the Balkans. Grenades rain down over the streets. From the rooftops, a heavy machinegun fire strikes down on the hunting battalion. Moaning, the injured soldiers crawl for cover. Molotov cocktails explode with hollow roars, and the burning liquid splash up on humans and materiel. - Partisan, the major stutters terrified and jumps off the vehicle. Porta salutes him with an idiotic smile. - Reporting to the Major that they will probably make it hot for us!

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.

voice of an idiot

I have read this book and it's excellent, so I thought a good one to listen to, but a big no, this is a German wartime story, the narrator sounds like he should be reading Barbara cartland love stories, then he breaks into a Cornish accent, then an underland British gangster, he mispronounces words like feldwebel, his pronoucination is feldweeble, and yes I speak German also, this narrator hasn't bothered to do any research and he reads like a bedtime story, he has ruined a good listen, wish I could have my money back, do not buy

stupid accents

the west country British accent of tinys ( a German soldier) was a bit much even for me and the other accents were not too far behind yes I enjoyed the book but definitely not the reading
