I remember reading a Sven Hassel novel some years back where a unit of SS mongs were used for mine clearance. So I was wondering; A: If it had any basis in fact at all? B: Which book it was? I can't for the life of me remember. C: What amount of ice cream would you use to tempt them across a minefield? D: Which flavour would be best? E: If they really would be naive enough to believe that the Russians had better ice-cream than the Germans? F: Could there be a place for the Royal Corps of Minesweepers in today's army? G: Are there any alternative jobs they could do (in the event of a lack of minefields)?
