Stationed on the Russian Front and now equipped with armoured vehicles, Sven Hassel and his comrades from the 27th Penal Regiment fight on remorselessly... All of them should be dead: Life expectancy on the Russian Front is measured in weeks. But Sven, Porta, Tiny and The Legionnaire fight to the end, not for Germany, not for Hitler, but for survival. Wheels of Terror is a sobering depiction of war's brutalities, and the violence and inhumanity that the history books leave out. Read by Rupert Degas.
"This is a book of horrors, and should be left alone by those prone to nightmares. Sven Hassel's descriptions of the atrocities committed by both sides are the most horrible indictments of war I have ever read ... A great war novel!" (Alan Silitoe)

I read the book as a much younger man, as indeed I read all of Sven Hassels utterly brilliant books.
All aspects of the whole story
By giving each of these likeable roughs a distinctive accent and voice, he really brings the characters to life, The ideal man for the job.
Certain aspects of the book are heartbreaking, other parts are hilarious. The whole story is an emotional rollercoaster.
I am thoroughly delighted that Sven Hassel has at long last been brought into the audible book world. I can't wait for the rest of the works of Sven Hassel to appear in my audible library. Keep up the good work.
More sophisticated than I expected.
