“In the main this book is based on photographs which should actually have gone up in the smoke 1945. It is fact that all the negatives of the photos taken by the war reporters of the Waffen-SS were completely destroyed on highest order shortly before the end of the war. Due to a lucky chance the small contact prints were saved to large extend. These almost 100.000 contact prints (24x36mm) are without captions and mostly undated so that it was only possible to interpret them by painstaking research, reconstruction, comparisons, by identifying people and place. Naturally here and there errors are inevitable but these can be accepted if on the other hand it has been possible to give a comprehensive survey of the fighting Waffen-SS by using these impressive photographs.
We are indebted to Fotomeister Werner Held for making these optimal photo reproduction possible. When the Publishers produced this book, they were conscious of the fact that a portrayal of the fighting of the Waffen-SS will always be incomplete, although we were able to use hithero unpublished pictures. Admist of the falling bombs of the invasion, during the battles in Italy and during the final battle in the Reich photos were rarely taken. The available material from this time is poor.
This book is supposed to show the soldiers of the Waffen-SS fighting, those who stood and fought in the forward front line and who gave their best in military actions. We emphatically dissociate ourselves from those who within the special units carried out their tragic business, from the “desk murderers” and from the Highest Command of the Waffen-SS. The men of the Waffen-SS, however, their officers and commanders, fully deserve a fair judgment. They were soldiers like their brothers in arms of the Army and their sacrifice of killed, wounded and soldiers missed do not count any less than those of the other soldiers and their former opponents.”
