• Personal review of the Waffen-SS by a leading journalist assigned to cover these formidable units, who then went into battle

While the Waffen-SS has become legendary as an elite fighting force in World War II, there are few accounts that present the human face of those fearsome formations.

Erich Stahl was a professional journalist assigned to cover some of the most famous of these units -- the 1st SS Panzer Division “Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler,” the 5th SS Panzer Division “Wiking,” and the Dutch and Ukrainian volunteers serving with the SS -- but with a twist: he actually pulled duty as a soldier in the front lines, where he experienced all the hardships, privations, and gut-wrenching emotions of the men who fought the Soviets.

REVIEWS

A useful ground-level view of the campaign, but also a very moving account; the quality of the writing is so good that you feel you are present at the events.
