Devil's Guard - George Robert Elford

N.E.L., 1980, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. Gently faded at the spine and wraps. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned, pages similar. A reasonably copy of an uncommon title.

This is a first hand record of an unregenerate Nazi who escaped the war crimes trials in Europe after World War II and joined the French Foreign Legion. Sent to Indochina to fight the Viet Minh, the German battalion shot, bombed, tortured and bayoneted the enemy. Devil’s Guard is one man’s personal document of reprisals and counter-reprisals, of criminal violence on both sides, of outrages against humanity, of war at its rawest, cruellest and most gruesome.
