Description
From the SS sprang a paramilitary force--a superbly trained machine in the face of war. This powerful spearhead was known as the "Waffen-SS. Its crack formations rolled back the Allied armies in Poland, Russia and France. By the end of the War it numbered over half a million men under arms--recruited from many different nationalities. This detailed history looks closely at both faces of the SS formations, and gives a vivid picture of the diabolical architects of the world's most terrible private army--Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler.

display_descriptionIn 1933, Heinrich Himmler assembled a group of superbly trained, fiercely loyal soldiers. Bound by an oath of "obedience unto death" to Adolf Hitler, these men formed the Fuhrer's personal bodyguard the Schutzstaffel, or SS. The SS grew guickly to become an instrument of terror in Nazi Germany. But as war approached, Himmler secured Hitler's approval to form a paramilitary branch to this "protection squad" the Waffen-SS.
