Yes i do, so far i've read legion of the damned, reign of hell, wheels of terror, monte casino and comrades of war. A great read and i would recconmend them to anyone who's into their war novels. Based on WWII from the side of the Germans.
Always thought it was bit odd trying to follow the books in a chronicle as some characters would be dead only to repair in a later book. Good rading even if the stories are a bit OTT (the sub stories between chapters are very good though)
I have to admit that I read all of them as a youngster and enjoyed every page. I started with Blitzfreeze and became hooked. It fueled an enduring interest in the Wehrmacht and much related WWII German stuff. They wouldn't have the same magic if I started reading them now but to a 13 year old they were fantastic. Sven Hassel had a combination of war, violence, sex, drunkeness and importantly, humour, that entertained me for years.
I have done some Leo Kessler but they were always dull compared to Sven Hassel. Biggles was also OK but a bit dated and without the sex or random violence.
I too had done the Google and wikipedia search for the author. The fact that he was a walt doesn't reduce the impact his books had on my teenage years.
Odin decided over both Gods and humans. To his help he had many animals. His horse was named Sleipner, it had eight legs and could easily run in the sky. His pig was Sarimner, it was boiled and was eaten every night but in the morning it was alive again. Odin never ate of the food that was served, he gave it to his two wolves, Gere and Freke. Odin only drank wine, that was enough for both food and drink to him. Odin also had two ravens that was called Hugin and Munin, they flew every night out into the world and found out all new things that had happend. Later they sat on Odins shoulders and told him the news, that's why he was the wisest and allknowing of the Gods.
Loved 'em. Best bits for me are anything to do with Porta, and the book where they got a pet panther called Ulrich, that decided it would play with members of the feldgendarmerie in the middle of a regimental boxing match.
