Weirdly, I’ve been looking up books I read as a youth – mainly pulp fiction – and Sven Hassel was just one of those authors that I got my hands on as a ten-year old (who knows where my parents were!). Gollancz have recently released news that Weidenfeld & Nicolson, an imprint of the Orion Publishing Group, has acquired World Rights to publish an illustrated version of Sven Hassel’s iconic war novel, Wheels of Terror.

Contention regarding the author aside, these books were brutal, thrilling stories about war. The misfit bunch of soldiers Hassel depicted were captivating and, hopefully, the graphic novel will do them justice.

Wheels of Terror will be published to mark the 70th anniversary of the conflict’s conclusion, released on October 1st.
