Wonder how it went with the ex-wehrmacht guys in Indochina.
There's been a couple of books out there about former SS fighting in battles in Vietnam. Two books are authored by George Robert Elford: "Devil's Guard" and "Recall To Inferno Devil's Guard Two". I bought and read the second one way back in the 1980s. Being a packrat, I still have it.
I don't remember much about the story anymore but I do plan to re-read it. I think I will buy the first one though just for the sake of continuity. I'm glad they reprinted the first one at least I can get it at a cheaper price. I just looked at Amazon for "Recall To Inferno" and the cheapest they have for paperback is $57.00!
Here's the description of the book "Recall To Inferno" as written in the back cover:
RADIO HANOI CALLED THEM THE COMMANDOS OF DEATH
The French Foreign Legion first recruited fugitive veterans of the German S.S. to fight in the bloodstained jungles of Asia. Then came the defeat at Dien Bien Phu and the Legion's forts became graveyards. The dreaded S.S. battalion was disbanded. But not all of them went home.
Three hundred hand-picked commandos became a secret fighting force. Code-named Task Force-G, they were mercenaries without a master, unshackled to fight any way they wanted. And they wanted to fight hard, dirty, and without mercy.
This is their untold story - a tale of men with ferocious bloodlust, superhuman courage, and a streak of insanity that made them the most feared killers, and heroes of Vietnam's long and deadly war.

louiejo1: I have designed and built a pretty faithful reproduction of the WW2 Japanese Type 89 Knee mortar for airsoft use. I takes standard 40mm gas grenades and has an effective range when held at a 45 degree angle of 120-130 ft.
