This is a wonderful advent total to the Panzer Divisions of the Waffen-SS. The writing all through is great: The textual content is apparent, specific, and objective.

The booklet comprises separate chapters on all the significant Panzer Divisions of the Waffen-SS: The 2d (Das Reich); the third (Totenkopf); the fifth (Wiking); the ninth (Hohenstaufen); the tenth (Frundsberg); and the twelfth (Hitlerjugend).

These chapters don't stand on my own, although, as mini-histories of every department. as a substitute, if activities of 1 department have been integrated in reference to an already mentioned department, then the writer essentially tells you to learn the bankruptcy at the already mentioned division.

In addition, the various chapters are super brief (both as a result of the author's tendency to refer the reader again to earlier chapters and as the divisions have been short-lived). therefore, the chapters at the Hohenstaufen, Frundsberg, and Hitlerjugend divisions in simple terms hide a number of pages every one, with nearly all of the booklet protecting the exploits of the first, 2d, third, and fifth divisions.

These flaws avert a five-star rating.

There is additionally a long bankruptcy on "Other" Panzer SS divisions yet there's little info supplied and lots of the bankruptcy is taken up by means of pictures, even supposing the pictures are well-selected and well-reproduced.

In truth, the e-book comprises good over a hundred well-selected pictures that increase the textual content, together with sixteen pages of pictures in complete colour, 1/2 that are full-page images and one is even a two-page unfold of a Panzer Mark III (Panzerkampfwagen III) in Nov. 1941 crossing a snow-covered box in entrance of a farm and through three troops. those notable photographs should be definitely worth the fee of ebook itself.
