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 The SS-general is marching in front of the convoy, silently and withdrawn.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
