From the rear side cover: This is the photographic history of the Waffen SS and its decline from triumph into disaster is told through these powerful images, which vividly document the reality of combat in the East from 1941-1945.

These rare images capture the combat history of the Waffen SS in the East, and traces the downward curve from the optimism of the opening stages of the war through the challenges of Barbarossa, to the long and bloody retreat pursued by a numerically superior enemy. The final chapter id their ignominious defeat at the hands of the Red Army. This powerful photographic record is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the role played by the Waffen SS in the East.
