DESCRIPTION: Another IoW series addition with the now expected 
outstanding and rare images. This is the comprehensive view of 
Waffen-SS activities filmed through the war, much recommended.

The now very familiar IoW format provides a visualisation of war 
that is difficult to fully describe in words. However, there is 
clear and concise text in support of the rare images that nicely 
complements the images.

The SS originated at the start of Hitler's NASI Party by providing 
his close bodyguard, developing into an r organization, capable of 
taking on any enemy military force on the battlefield. The ruthless 
approach of men and commandos led to the Waffen-SS committing a 
number of atrocities in every campaign they were engaged in, but the 
ruthlessness extended to their own men. Many Waffen-SS victories were 
achieved at very high cost when another formation might have achieved 
the same result at much lower cost.

This book is divided into three sections, the Western Front 1939-1940, 
the Eastern Front 1941-1943, in Combat 1943-1945
