Seconded! Very funny book, and at the same time some astute observations. For people with no wargaming background, it can be a bit too esoteric, though.Lexxx wrote:If you remember reading Hassel as a schoolboy, then you must read "Achtung Schweinehund!: A Boy's Own Story of Imaginary Combat" by Harry Pearson. The author's autobiographical account of growing up in Britain during the 70s and early 80s is a hoot. He writes at length about the influences on his early boyhood . . . from British war comics, to Leo Kessler, and (of course) Sven Hassel. A righteous romp through memory lane for this poster.
