SS GENERAL is the definitive Stalingrad novel, a gripping portrait of war's brutal realities.

It was said that Stalingrad had been burning since August, ever since the first German bombs were dropped...

Sven Hassel and his comrades are plunged into the maelstrom of Stalingrad.

Radio Moscow reports that one German soldier dies every minute.

Trapped by the Russian counter-attack, starving soldiers must resort to cannibalism to survive. But 'Tiny', Porta, the Legionnaire and Sven attempt to break out, to fight their way across the frozen steppe.

Their leader: an SS general who takes no prisoners...

Biographical Notes

Born in 1917 in Fredensborg, Denmark, Sven Hassel joined the merchant navy at the age of 14. He did his compulsory year's military service in the Danish forces in 1936 and then, facing unemployment, joined the German army. He served throughout the Second World War on all fronts except North Africa. When the war ended in 1945 he was transferred between Russian, American and French prison camps, and upon returning to Denmark, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for treason. He began writing LEGION OF THE DAMNED during his time as a prisoner of war. His 14 Second World War books, which draw on his own encounters and experiences as a soldier, have sold over 53 million copies worldwide and have been published in more than 50 countries. He peacefully passed away in Barcelona in 2012, where he had resided since 1964.
