Publisher's Summary

Following the myths and legends about Nazis recruited by the French Foreign Legion to fight in Indochina, Eric Meyer's new book is based on the real story of one such former Waffen-SS man who lived to tell the tale. The legion recruited widely from soldiers left unemployed and homeless by the defeat of Germany in 1945. They offered new identities and passports to men who could bring their fighting abilities to the jungles and rice paddies of what was to become Vietnam. These were ruthless, trained killers, brutalized by the war on the Eastern Front, their killing skills honed to a razor's edge. They found their true home in Indochina, where they fought and became a byword for brutal military efficiency.

Utter rubbish

What a massive disappointment. What could have been a incredible story was thrown away in favour of a trashy third rate novel. Riddled with inconsistencies and with a painful love interest that was as surreal as a kinder egg on the moon. Made all the more cringe by being read by an elderly American who sounded like he was reading a bed time story to an eight year old. It was beyond awful don’t waste your money or time with this drivel.

Terrible..!

Started OK for the first 2 or 3 chapters.

I downloaded this book thinking it was indeed a true story of Germán former SS soldiers fighting in Indochina in the French Foreign Legion.

Instead it reads like the fantasies of a teenage "armchair warrior" who's never seen a day of active service, let alone fight in a vicious war like the French war in Indochina...
