Inside the Third Reich’s deadliest divisions
The Waffen-SS was one of the most feared combat organizations of the twentieth century. Originally formed as a protection squad for Adolf Hitler, it became the military wing of Heinrich Himmler's SS. During its short history, the elite military divisions of the Waffen-SS acquired a reputation for excellence, but their success on the battlefield was matched by their infamous atrocities against soldiers and civilians.
Waffen-SS is the first definitive single-volume military history of the organization in more than 50 years. In considering the actions of its leading personalities and analyzing its training and ideological outlook, historian Adrian Gilbert chronicles the battles and campaigns that brought the Waffen-SS both fame and infamy.
