SWEDES AT WAR OUT IN THE UK

Post  sepals on Mon 26 Apr 2010 - 22:31

SWEDES AT WAR: WILLING WARRIORS OF A NEUTRAL NATION 1914-1945 is finally out in the UK.

"Books addressing the experiences of soldiers of the major combatant nations in the World Wars are important and popular with military historians and buffs alike. However, never before has anyone had the opportunity to examine the experiences of the soldiers of a neutral nation in the major wars of the first half of the 20th century. The authors tell the stories of their countrymen who served in the ranks of the Red Army, Waffen SS, U.S. Army, French Foreign Legion and a dozen other armies. More than 23,000 not so neutral Swedes served in foreign armies between 1914 and 1945, volunteering and fighting across a broad swathe of battlefields, motivated by a wide variety of causes and reasons. Enter their worlds in the pages of this book, and follow them from the no man's lands of World War I to the hedgerows of Normandy and the frozen steppes and Taiga of the Soviet Union."



The book is written by Lars Gyllenhaal and Lennart Westberg
