Taken back to being nineteen again

I have just seen in a BHF charity shop, two books by Sven Hassell. I remember reading these whilst on EM's course at Collingwood. What struck me most was they were marked "Classic War" and were being sold at £14 the pair.
 
Read them all whilst in the mob at sea - some a few times over - I always thought he was Danish ??

Remebered a classic line from reading them 40 years ago

By Tiny after knocking someone off 'that'll stop him farting in chuch' - I used to wet myself laughing (them)
 
I thought he was Danish and also read them all when I was in the mob. The writing style was almost exactly the same as Erich Maria Remarque in All Quiet On The Western Front.
