Sven Hassel began writing his first novel, LEGION OF THE DAMNED, as a prisoner of war at the end of the Second World War. This led to a series of fourteen books with an unshakeable narrative which draw on his own fight and experiences as a soldier in the German Army. To this day, the books have sold over 53 million copies worldwide and have been published in more than 50 countries.

Sven Hassel’s work is a testament to the brutality of war and the inhumanity that the history books leave out.
