    I fell in love with this author and his books. They are what I imagine in military fiction. There is everything but not pathos. The storytelling drags reader in to thick action and put clear sign that this book is the most anti-war and anti-oppression thing I have ever read. Sven, Porta, Tiny, Alte and others were in the middle of war at the Finnish borders, where the winter was as bad as Russians and even own side. There is episode with very unfair court martial, which put insight in nazi way h I fell in love with this author and his books. They are what I imagine in military fiction.

There is episode with very unfair court martial, which put insight in nazi way how to deal with everybody and how criminal regime could be even to its own people. Lot of blood and gore but with meaning, which goes well with plot.

    Azt kaptam, amit vártam. A háború borzalmai, Porta és Pici kétes üzletei, nagy hideg és hó…ezekbe volt ágyazva, amiről valójában szólt a könyv. Hihetetlen, hogy a sok borzalom közepette még történhettek olyan dolgok, amin hangosan felröhögtem…mint például, amikor megpróbáltág Emil-t kinyírni és végső megoldásként egy vadmacskát választottak. :D Már csak két kötet van hátra a sorozatból és őszintén sajnálni fogom, ha a végére érek…

    Group of war comrades in the middle of World War II, when no one, even a general, in German army can't be sure of his fate and the battlefield with Soviet troops attacking isn't the worst place on Earth. War is hell.

    Sven Hassel  nos sitúa en esta ocasión en el frente de Finlandia. Los ya famosos personajes de las obras de este autor han de afrontar una situación difícil, ya que las tropas alemanas se han de retirar tras un fortísimo ataque de los rusos. El coronel Frick se ve obligado a tomar una decisión crucial: dejar atrás a los heridos que no pueden caminar, al cuidado de algunos voluntarios, para salvar al resto de las fuerzas en retirada. Convoca una reunión de oficiales, en la que alguno Sven Hassel  nos sitúa en esta ocasión en el frente de Finlandia. Los ya famosos personajes de las obras de este autor han de afrontar una situación difícil, ya que las tropas alemanas se han de retirar tras un fortísimo ataque de los rusos. El coronel Frick se ve obligado a tomar una decisión crucial: dejar atrás a los heridos que no pueden caminar, al cuidado de algunos voluntarios, para salvar al resto de las fuerzas en retirada. Convoca una reunión de oficiales, en la que algunos demuestran su disconformidad, mientras que otros se limitan a inhibirse. Solo el teniente Wisling apoya incondicionalmente al coronel. Una vez alcanzan las líneas propias, el teniente Schulz, un nazi convencido, denuncia al coronel y al teniente que estuvo de acuerdo con él. Es impresionante la escena del fusilamiento de tres altos oficiales, entre ellos, el coronel Frick, acción que da origen al titulo del libro. Como siempre, el autor contrapesa la crudeza y verismo de los hechos relatados, con algunas escenas realmente jocosas, a cargo de los inevitables personajes, llenos de humanidad y simpatía

    La storia della Seconda sezione ( che diventa a mio avviso sempre più leggendaria ) tra le bianche nevi della Finlandia. Già da diversi libri lo stile di Hassel per il Vecchio Unno sembra mutato: ha perso la sua proverbiale calma.

Già da diversi libri lo stile di Hassel per il Vecchio Unno sembra mutato: ha perso la sua proverbiale calma. Nel frattempo il libro descrive le avventure della Seconda sezione divenuta un gruppo di commandos sabotatori dietro alle linee nemiche. Come sempre, il libro sembra più che altro una raccolta di vicende, che seguono il filo logico di alcune altre che descrivono l'intera storia. Il romanzo non manca di nulla, in quanto comicità-ironia-tragicità. Anche in questo libro l'autore non manca di dimostrare che ogni situazione può capovolgersi completamente, trasformandosi da una allegra festa ad un orribile massacro ( come l'episodio di fraternizzazione tra russi e tedeschi, a fine libro ), dove la morte è ogni dove. "Vieni, dolce morte, vieni" ... direbbe il Legionario.

    Very Very Good. I enjoyed this book. It brings the reader deep into WW2. It's realistic and doesn't hold punches, it really shows the horrors of War.

    Again another excellent book from Sven Hassel. It’s a great example of humanity in inhuman conditions!

    It didn't leave an impression on me as other books in the series have; maybe it's because I am somehow bored by now, but it left me the impression that nothing new happens, event if no other stories from the Finnish front are illustrated in other books so far; it's not a bad book, but nothing more than average

    c1979. One of the last of the series which is about a German platoon (Porta, Tiny, Old Man, the Legionnaire, Heide, Barcelona-Blom, Sven, etc.) on different fronts during WWII and narrates the atrocity and absurdity of war from a German perspective. Bio courtesy of authors website - "Hassel was born in 1917 in Fredensborg, a small village of Denmark. He was raised in the traditional scenario of a Danish working-class family. At the age of 14 Sven embarked in the merchant navy as a shipboy. In 19 c1979.

At the age of 14 Sven embarked in the merchant navy as a shipboy. In 1936 he did his military service, and the following year, due to the great unemplyment in Denmark, he joined the German army as a volunteer. Initially he served in the 2nd Cavalry Regiment and furthermore in the 11th and 27th "Panzerregiment". He fought in all the frontlines except in the North of Africa. Consequentialy Sven was wounded eight times. From 1945 to 1949 he was a POW and was subject to Russian, American, French and Danish prisoner camps. only Tiny, the Legionnaire, Heide, Gregor Martin and Sven survived the war." Dramatic and effective style of writing - suited to the story being told.

Everything I expected from Hassel, a continuous series of dimly-connected hyper-violent and almost unremittingly grim vignettes that provide a surprisingly strong antidote to the usual style of war fiction, which contrasts the violence with some humanity.

One thing I was not ready for, however, was the way the grim and dark storyline means that even the most implausibly silly-but-nasty plan, like assassinating someone with an enraged wildcat, seems totally reasonable.

    El autor fue un ex soldado de la Wehrmatcht, con una gran cantidad de libros de género histórico-Guerra que cuenta las andanzas de una división alemana con soldados bastante peculiares y característicos. La historia cuenta con unos capítulos que vale la pena recalcar como espectaculares por su descripción histórica de la época de guerra sobre todo la Batalla de Finlandia y un capítulo que habla sobre los bombardeos en Berlín y sus desertores militares que buscan donde esconderse.
