No military organisation has fought as well against such overwhelming odds as the
Waffen-SS, but few have earned such an infamous reputation in the process. Hitler’s
elite proved itself in some of the most savage actions of World War II: the battle of
Kharkov, the defence of the Demyansk Pocket and the Normandy landings. Certain
units, however, also perpetrated atrocities against innocent civilians, while others
were closely associated with the concentration camps.
Personal Accounts of the Waffen-SS at War is the story of the men who wore the
SS runes – told in their own words. Speaking candidly about their wartime service,
former Waffen-SS soldiers of all ranks and nationalities talk about their training,
indoctrination, combat on the Eastern Front, their commanders and political masters
and the issue of atrocities.
Illustrated with 150 rare black-and-white photographs, Personal Accounts of the
Waffen-SS at War
examines one of the most fascinating organisations of the Third
Reich from the inside, through the personal accounts of Waffen-SS soldiers. This
book will appeal to anyone interested in the history of World War II and the Third
Reich.
