Originally formed as a protection squad for Adolf Hitler, the Waffen-SS became the military wing of Heinrich Himmler's SS and a key part of the Nazi state, with nearly 900,000 men passing through its ranks. During its short history, the elite military divisions of the Waffen-SS acquired a reputation for excellence, but their famous battlefield record of success was matched by their repeated atrocities against both soldiers and civilians. In considering the actions of its leading personalities, including Himmler, Sepp Dietrich, and Otto Skorzeny, and analyzing its specialist training and ideological outlook, Adrian Gilbert chronicles the battles and campaigns that brought the Waffen-SS both fame and infamy.
