Battalion of the Damned: The 1st Marine Paratroopers at Gavutu and Bloody Ridge, Based primarily on interviews with the marines who were there, this volume reconstructs the six weeks spent in the Pacific theater of World War II by the First Marine Parachute Division.3/5(1). The fascinating, true story of the French Foreign Legion’s Nazi battalion WHAT THEY DID IN WORLD WAS II WAS HITORY’S BLOODIEST ashes of World War II were still cooling when France went to war in the jungles of Southeast Asia/5(8).

This is exactly the story of Hans Wagemueller and his "battalion of the Damned". So yes, I understand how this book would provide the most satisfying kind of escapism in that situation. But I honestly think it's such a dangerous book. It's a proper crash course into Nazism, because it teaches you how to dehumanise the "enemy"/5. Burgin was the author of the memoir Islands of the Damned: A Marine at War in the Pacific (with William Marvel). He was awarded a Bronze Star for his actions in the Battle of Okinawa on 2 May , when he destroyed a Japanese machine gun emplacement that had his company pinned s/wars: World War II, *Battle of Cape . Sven Hassel was a pen name that Borge Willy Pedersen used to write novels set in the Second World War. By the time the Dane died in at the age of 95, he was one of the most popular and most prolific authors to come out of Denmark.   Battalion of the Damned is the gripping account of the 1st Marine Parachute Battalion on Guadalcanal. Critical to defending Bloody Ridge, the Parachute Battalion is rarely mentioned in histories, most of which focus on the 1st Marine Raiders/5(14).

The Damned Engineers is the history of the st Engineer Combat Battalion during the Battle of the Bulge. This humble unit and their leaders were the biggest thorn /5.   Carry on! Until the bitter end, You are Devil's Guard, The Battalion of the Damned. A LEGION MARCHING SONG The release of the book THE DEVIL'S GUARD caused a major scandal when it was first released in and tells the story of SS soldier Hans Josef Wagemueller who spent decades in continual combat, in 'unconditional warfare' as he called it. Sven Hassel was the pen name of the Danish-born Børge Willy Redsted Pedersen (19 April – 21 September ) who wrote novels set during World War II. In Denmark he used the pen name Sven Hazel. Although he is arguably one of the most sold Danish authors, at most second to Children: Michael Hasse Arbing. The forth book in the series of Sven’s war and terrors encountered and as with the previous three book you are captivated with the characters, growing with them as they fight for the Third Reich in the penal battalion; being used as cannon fodder and given the worse jobs on the Eastern Front, being the platoon to go into battle first/5(52).
