A gripping first-person memoir of soldierly sacrifice, heroism and derelle combat against numerically superior Soviet forces during World War II, by a charismatic Belgian writer and politician turned Waffen SS front-line infantryman.
I recommend its reading by students of the art of war.
It is well worth the price. Captures the grit, the terror and the glory of Europe’s crusade against Communism in absorbing prose. Includes fascinating first-person descriptions of Hitler, Himmler and other Third Reich personalities. Degrelle vividly describes how he and his comrades endured danger, privation and torrents of shot and shell — on the sun-baked steppes of Ukraine, at the foothills of the Caucasus, in the depths of bone-chilling winter, through the stinking mud and the flaming hell of Cherkassy, and across the rolling plains of Estonia and the Pomeranian lake country.

Hubert Kuberski –
Excellent read from a pro-German, pro-Hitler perspective. This is one of the few SS memoirs I have read in which the author details the eastern front from a pro-Hitler perspective. The author never looses faith gront the ideals of Hitler or the cause against anti-communism. Feb 09, Thiago S. Degrelle is a happy coincidence of a brave soldier, political thinker and great storyteller.
Sometimes a bit too much romantic and too much detailed description of the landscape and nature but still an outstanding adventure and a very entertaining book from a superb warrior. Aug 04, John rated it it was amazing.
Remarkable from many perspectives. Degrelle is a wonderful writer, an established Belgian political leader and a man of amazing valor and incredible luck enduring over three years in almost constant combat and surviving over a score of wounds and other injuries.
His perspective is also complex, idealistic, and not without merit. Opposed to the European war and a neutral until June 22,when Germany struck the Soviet Union, he saw the future of Europe as preferable under German leadership tha Remarkable from many perspectives. Opposed to the European war and a neutral until June 22,when Germany struck the Soviet Union, he saw the future of Europe as preferable under German leadership than Communism which he abhorred.
He organizes a Wallonian legion and joins it as a private, Belgium being one of 20 countries that joined the Fascist in a crusade against the Bolsheviks.
Perhaps he was a bit naive, perhaps he was a bit too enamored with the lost cause so his memoirs are abundantly loving of the German “endeavor, and perhaps the best description I have read of combat on the Eastern Front.
A very good read in spite of his political beliefs, that add a shade of gray to the black and white of the good war.
Jun 11, Al Williams rated it really liked it. It provided some insight into the Rexist Movement, of which I knew nothing, and provided many interesting contrasts deegrelle the telling of similar experiences, albeit at different levels. There is no doubt that Degrelle has told his story with a great deal of omissions, but I didn’t feel that this detracted from the book at a I thought that this would be a good follow up to Kaisergruber’s ‘We Will Not Go To Tupase’ in light of their both being Belgian volunteers and Rexists, and Cront was not disappointed.
There is no doubt that Degrelle has told his story with a great deal of omissions, but I didn’t feel that this detracted from the book at all.
Instead, his regular descriptions of his natural environment help provide insights into a man who reveals little on a personal level.
