The members of the SS and German Police who received the Third Reich's highest military award have received extensive coverage from the earliest years of World War II research, however previous attempts at documenting all the Ritterkreuztrager (Knight's Cross holders) of the Waffen-SS have been highly selective in the degree of coverage allocated to each recipient, with much focus being granted to select luminaries and very little to those deemed more obscure or controversial. These earlier works, the best known of them authored by Waffen-SS veterans, have also largely reflected the political opinions of their authors rather than presenting the facts alone. In this first volume, intended as a handy reference for the use of historians and militaria collectors alike, the author presents rare and useful biographical data, derived primarily from SS personnel files and other contemporary documentation, on 178 SS and Police recipients of the Ritterkreuz. Lavishly illustrated, it contains hundreds of diverse and often striking photographs of the recipients covered. As noted military historian Hugh Page Taylor writes, `[This] fine reference [that] Mike Miller has now made available is a great relief, one I know I share with others seriously, objectively and without bias interested in the men of the Waffen-SS and Police.'
