With extensive text and many unpublished photographs with in-depth captions - the successful Images of War format - this book describes the Division's fighting tactics, weapons and uniforms. It traces how the Division became an elite fighting unit both in offensive and defensive battles. The Division is shown as it battled its way through Poland, the Low Countries, the Balkans and then on the Eastern Front, where it fought tenaciously for Kharkov and in the 1943 battle of Kursk. In 1944 it was deployed to Normandy before the carnage of the Falaise Pocket. Soon after it was back in action during the bitter winter fighting in the Ardennes, before returning to the Eastern Front where it was shifted from one disintegrating part of the front to another. The Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler (LSSAH) provides a captivating glimpse of the history and inner workings of one of the most effective fighting formations of the Second World War.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a neat picture album with many interesting photos in it not seen before. It will be of much interest to military historians and modelers alike."--AMPS Indianapolis
"The author does a good job of giving you a condensed history of the division. He also does not shy away from the LSSAH's many war crimes... For model makers and others, the book is a great source on uniforms, weapons, and markings of the LSSAH."--A Wargamers Needful Things
