I have read several books written by him.
He will be missed!
Yet another fan! Got "March Battalion!" for Christmas when I was 15 in 1970. Had to take my dog for a walk on Christmas Day, in the snowy Suffolk countryside; which soon became the Russian Front! Have just bought the Cassell edition on Amazon. Maybe it will snow this year! Thanks for the website.
I first met sven Hassel and his family in "Legion of The Damned" in a public library. I read "Wheels of Terror" and saw the movie, which was just not "based on a story by" but followed the novel quite faithfully. A truly great writer honorably mentioned in the same breath as Earnest Hemmingway. My goal is to read as many of Sven's stories I can get my hands on. Honor is due.
