About this Product

Famed for their fighting qualities, fanaticism and brutality, the Waffen-SS evolved from being Hitler's fiercely loyal personal bodyguard in the 1920s into an army which spearheaded the assault on the Soviet Union and staunchly defended the Reich in the final days of World War II. From their origins and training through to their role in the bitter fighting towards the end of the war, Hitler's Elite delves into the history of the SS, the most infamous military formation in history, presenting a fully illustrated, comprehensive study of their actions as part of the Third Reich.
