Abstract:

From the Publisher Even after 60 years, the exploits in World War II of the Waffen-SS -- the military arm of Heinrich Himmler's SS -- still have a fascination for many. Featuring 250 previously unpublished action photographs, SS: The Secret Archives -- Western Front illustrates in vivid detail the campaigns of the Waffen-SS against the Allies in the west from 1940 to 1945. The book covers the deeds of the Waffen-SS divisions in France, the Low Countries, the Balkans, Italy and finally Germany itself, each photograph in the book accompanied by a lengthy, informative caption describing the subject matter. Events featured inside include the fall of France, the Normandy campaign and the Battle of the Bulge. Collected from old albums, newspaper and divisional archives after extensive research, the photographs build up to present a picture of what life was like for the stormtroopers in Himmler's elite force. A comprehensively illustrated study of the Waffen-SS in action in the west, SS: The Secret Archives -- Western Front features action photographs of such famous divisions as the Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler, Das Reich, Hitlerjugend and Totenkopf, and will appeal to anyone with an interest in the Waffen-SS as a fighting force in World War II.
