DESCRIPTION: The Images of War Series has become very popular. This 
addition to the series follows the proven format of combining concise 
text with a large number of images from wartime archives. This is a 
fine selection of images that tells the story of armour in the closing 
stages of WWII and the use made of it by the Waffen-SS – Most 
Highly Recommended.

By 1944, even the most committed Nazis were coming to realize that 
Germany would lose the war, the only questions were; when would the 
war end, and; what peace terms could the Germans expect. Many hoped 
that the Western Allies would agree a peace, followed by an alliance 
against the Soviets. In general terms, that translated into 
concentrating resources to delay the Soviet advance and a firm 
defence in the West in the hope of obtaining favourable peace terms. 
For the Waffen-SS and their panzers, their approach was to go hard 
for whatever enemy was in front of them in the hope the Fuhrer would 
find his magic wand and come up with a brilliant solution.

The SS were to become the elite troops, often receiving priority for 
the best equipment, and used in every desperate attempt to defeat 
their enemies. In the process they earned a reputation for the finest 
armoured forces and a reputation for war crimes that tainted their 
overall reputation.

The author has captured the nature and contradictions of the 
Waffen-SS and their often inspired use of the latest armour. He has 
also captured the variations between the fronts, the conditions and 
the equipment. Clear concise text supported by many superb images 
with the usual high percentage of very rare images.
