    I had many hours of entertainment reading his books and still do. A sad passing.

    Dont confuse the man with the fiction.

    Sven Hazel aka Sven Hassel aka Sven Willy Hassel Arbing or rather BÝrge Willy Redsted Pedersen, as he was christened in his native Denmark, was most likely never the heroic gung-ho soldier he made out to be.

    Quite the contrary; Erik Haast, a Danish author whom I've met (EH himself being controversial), presented documents to the public, which showed that SH had a conviction for treason in Denmark.

    SH was also convicted for wearing a uniform and medals, to which he was not entitled.

    Most are loath to discuss him in his native Denmark. As a result of the above findings and as more and more info surfaced, his books are very seldom found in Denmark.

    They seem to be popular else where though.

    None of the above takes away an iota from the fact, that generations of teens has enjoyed the books and that they made millions.
