    When I read the title 'Legion of the Damned' I mistakenly thought it was referring to our "fair weather friends" who post in the SS rings forum.....



    No, not you Odal!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I think the Sven Hassel books could make for some excellent movies if the right director, screen writer and cast are found. However, you have to ask what market there is for them nowadays.
    I wonder if the 'brand' has been damaged by the awful 'Wheels of Terror' (Misfit Brigade) film from 1987?

    The company making the series is a leading British TV production company , they made The Fall and Thorne.

    Should be very atmospheric, haunting and edge of your seat stuff judging by those successes.

    I hope they keep the story to the books
