The SS was one of the most important institutions of Third Reich Germany, yet it is also among the least well understood. From the end of 1935, the SS had control over all police and internal security duties in Germany and the militarised Waffen SS had more than eight hundred thousand men serving in the field, in direct rivalry with the traditional German armed forces, the Wehrmacht. Making use of material not previously available, this definitive book refocuses attention on and enhances understanding of the hard-nosed political fanatics and opportunists who were responsible for one of the most appalling crimes in human history, the attempted execution of the Jews of Europe.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Weale's style is spare and compelling. He deftly evokes the various personalities involved in a paramilitary army which shrouded itself in bureaucratic acronyms ... This is an extremely important book which I recommend most highly Michael Burleigh, author of MORAL COMBAT 'In this landmark history, Adrian Weale deftly charts the development of the SS from its origins as a personal entourage to a weapon of genocide ... This is a major achievement by a historian at the top of his game, and deserves a lasting place on the Guy Walters, author of HUNTING EVIL and BERLIN GAMES

“Good, but a bit confusing.”

At the time of writing I am only half way through reading this book but so far it is entertaining. It must be difficult finding new material on such a widely covered subject and the author has achieved this. One... More
