The German Army of World War II has been recognized as one of the greatest fighting formations in military history, ranking alongside Caesar's Legions and Napoleon's Grande Armee. Elite units of the Third Reich is an analysis of German specialist units during World War II, formations such as the Brandenburgers, specially trained commandos who infiltrated behind enemy lines dressed in civilian clothes or uniforms of the enemy, and who seized important river crossings and disabled explosive charges placed on bridges and railways.

Illustrated throughout by photographs showing the personnel of these units in training and in action, Elite Units of the Third Reich also studies the specialist formations that endeavored to stave of military defeat during the last two years of the war, describing the composition of these units, their tactics and hardware. A whole chapter is devoted to the activities of perhaps the most famous Nazi commando: Otto Skorzeny, nicknamed "Scarface," the man who rescued the Italian dictator Mussolini in 1943. Elite Units of the Third Reich is an illuminating study of the crack formations of Hitler's military machine.
