Von Marseille bis Nowosibirsk: Französische Freiwillige im Kampf - Buch
The author was - at that time 17 years old - certainly one of the youngest Europeans to volunteer for war. The focus is on the front-line operations in the Carpathians and Galicia, up to the heavy defensive fighting in Pomerania. No less shocking is the dramatic fate in the Soviet POW camps that the author suffered with other French comrades, as well as the experiences they made on their return to their homeland. This report goes far beyond a single soldier's fate, because André Bayle gives deep insights into the motives that led young Frenchmen of the 33rd Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS 'Charlemagne' in their use.
