Twilight of the Gods (Ragnarok) by Erik Wallin and Thorolf Hillblad
(Hellion & co)

Erik's story of his time in the 11th AA SS Nordland between Dec 44 and May 45.

Erik Wallin was a Swede who volunteered in the Finnish army, and later in the SS to fight against the Red Army. While in Nordland he was part of the 11th AA, 3rd company - the "schwedenzug".

I just finished reading the english version of this book (the original "Ragnarok" was in Swedish). The tone of the book at times is "typically" biased in it's language etc, but if this is taken within the context of who wrote it, and when it was written, it is understandable and gives an insight into the feelings of the people in the book.

It is a gripping account of the final months of the war on the eastern front and well worth reading.

Ashley
