Reign of Hell by Sven Hassel
A sudden curtain of silence fell over the burning city. All that could be heard was the steady crackling of flames...Hitler's penal regiments advance on Poland. Himmler has given the order: Warsaw must be razed to the ground. But the Polish Home Army are not willing to give in to the German troops so easily. As the city erupts into an inferno of flames and gunfire, Sven and his comrades find themselves caught between the sadism of the SS and the guerrilla warfare of the Polish Resistance...Reign of Hell is a gripping insight into the Warsaw Uprising of 1944, and the bloodshed that ensued as the Polish tried desperately to liberate themselves from the German occupation.
