Written in the first person, SS-General is based on the adventures of a group of German penal battalion soldiers in the Battle of Stalingrad. The book describes their escape from the Stalingrad siege under the leadership of a fanatical Brigadeführer of the Waffen-SS. Like all Sven Hassel's books it contains graphic descriptions of war's brutality, as well as elements of military humor.
