About this item

Barbarossa, Leningrad, Kursk, Kharkov – the Eastern Front was the scene of the most decisive campaign of World War II and Hitler’s elite soldiers, the Waffen-SS, fought in the East from the beginning of the Russian campaign in 1941 to the fall of Berlin in 1945. As the war in the Soviet Union progressed, the formations of the Waffen-SS distinguished themselves. The premier Waffen-SS formations – the Leibstandarte, Das Reich, Totenkopf and Wiking Divisions – proved themselves to be masters of mechanised warfare and the all-arms battle. Enhanced by more than 100 exciting black-and-white photographs, SS: Hell on the Eastern Front is a detailed account of every aspect of the Waffen-SS’s war on the Eastern Front – its battles (against the Red Army and Soviet partisans), its organization, its recruitment of non-Germans, its tactics and equipment, orders of battle and its mentality.
