This book from writer Gordon Rottman offers a photographic survey of Waffen-SS fighting men. The series of black and white photos range from the early-war period right through to the last desperate days of 1945. Readers will find a veritable potpourri of interesting uniform, weapons and equipment on display. Even heavier equipment like antitank guns and StuG III assault guns is included too. Each of the 123 clearly reproduced photos are accompanied by a descriptive caption providing insights pertinent to the Waffen-SS.
This volume opens with a concise description of how the Waffen-SS was created and how it developed. The central four pages also contain color plates by artist Ramiro Bujeiro. These show four soldiers in typical uniforms and personal gear. This book is a welcome addition to Concord's Warrior series, and it fills an important niche in the coverage of WWII fighting men.
