Hitler?s ForcesWAFFEN SS AT WARA.J. Barker Despite the passing years, World War 2 still casts a giant shadow over the present day - even over those too young to have experienced the conflict. This fact is reflected in the continued publication of books on a variety of World War 2 topics and battle units. Among the many military formations of the period there is one that, justifiably, arouses particularly strong emotions - the Waffen-SS. Feared as ferocious adversaries and despised as war criminals, the fighting arm of the SS seems to sum up all that was evil in Hitler?s Nazi regime. And yet it is all too easy to understand the reasons behind the enthusiasm of the volunteers, for in its earlier years the Waffen-SS was an elite force. With the dashing uniforms and insignia - so fascinating to today?s collectors - at first, the Waffen-SS was the province of the true Aryans. Recruits received a harsh - at times brutal - initiation and training, and this - and the binding, solemn oath - built up a strong unit identification which exists to this day and is a powerful force behind the attempts of the SS veteran?s association to gain full combatant status. It was a major reason why ? almost unquestioningly ? the Waffen-SS became the Nazi?s instrument in a number of horrific atrocities which saw the SS branded as war criminals at the Nuremberg trials. This book does not attempt to analyze the rights and wrongs of the arguments or to glorify the Waffen-SS. It is a record of the formation?s campaigns, training and equipment, illuminated by first-hand accounts and a superb collection of over 150 photographs from the files of the Historical Research unit.Additional Information about Waffen SS at WarSize Height: 11.5 in.
