Thanks to Sven Hassel for his books, and to his family for keeping his legacy alive. I first read Blitzfreeze in 1978, as a young grade 10 school-boy, and together with all of my friends eagerly read each of his novels as they became available. Having served in the military and in combat in the Angolan bush-war in 1980's, I learnt first hand how memories blur, when one's first instinct is to try to stay alive , and how important your comrades are to you. Fights might break out over minor things, but you are always willing to share your toothbrush, razor and even underpants with your comrades. We were always hungry, and drank all alcohol that we could get our hands on. Reading about another young man, who also had to endure horrible things, but survived, and went on to live a full life, was a great inspiration to me personally. I will always be grateful that he had the courage to write about his experiences, and only wish that he could have known how his stories would help another generation of young men on the other side of the world to recover from the madness of war.
