The complete SIX-BOOK bestselling series that has sold over a million copies. Devil’s Guard traces the exploits of a German who fought in World War II on the Eastern Front, and went on to fight for the French and then the Americans in Vietnam. This massive volume includes the complete text of the novels DEVIL’S GUARD: BLOOD AND SNOW, DEVIL’S GUARD: BLOOD AND IRON, DEVIL’S GUARD: THE REAL STORY, DEVIL’S GUARD: VIETNAM, DEVIL’S GUARD: COUNTERATTACK, AND DEVIL’S GUARD: AFGHANISTAN. These epic novels are a breathtaking account of the harsh, brutal reality of one man’s war.
Jurgen Hoffman’s grueling career takes him from the vast snowy wastelands of the Russian Steppes, all the way to the steaming jungles of Vietnam. His enemy shouts the same, shrill slogans, and uses the same weapons. On the Eastern Front in Russia, they call themselves communists. In Vietnam, they are the Vietcong. Their motivation is the same. Killing, and more killing. To subdue and terrorize those who would challenge their absolute authority.
This is a fictional tale of the part one man played in the long, bloody battles. It is also the story of millions of fighting men. Of their guns, their tanks, their airplanes, and for some, their women.
Six full length novels. A rip roaring read from the first page to the last.
This box-set includes every book in the bestselling Devil’s Guard series:

DEVIL’S GUARD: THE REAL STORY
The French Foreign Legion recruited widely from German soldiers left unemployed and homeless by the defeat of Germany in 1945.
