From the cover: “The men of the Waffen-SS — the fighting branch of Hitler’s infamous Nazi organisation — were among the toughest and most feared troops in history. This book is a unique pictorial record of their operations in Russia between 1941 and 1945, from Operation Barbarossa through the fierce winter fighting, the battles of Kharkov and Kursk to the final German collapse. Drawing exclusively on German wartime photo archives, it is the third title in a series which will build into an invaluable illustrated reference library on all aspects of the war. It covers both the men of the Waffen-SS and their uniforms, weapons, tanks and other vehicles.
The photographs have all been carefully selected for freshness and quality as well as rarity value and interest, and the result is a new look at one of the most crucial campaigns of the war from the German viewpoint. In addition there is an introduction by well-known military and war gaming author Bruce Quarrie, which outlines the course of the campaign, the main SS units involved, and their equipment. There is also a campaign map and appendices giving the composition of an SS Panzer Division, etc. The result is a worthwhile investment for anyone with an interest in World War 2, including modellers and war gamers.”
