"In this sequel to his best selling, general introduction to the Waffen-SS, Hitler's samurai, Bruce Quarrie deals with the histories of each of the seven SS Panzer Divisions ... Within each chapter, the author describes how, where and why each unit was formed, who its commanders were, and in which campaigns and battles it participated. The book clearly shows why the SS armoured formations deserve the military appelation [i.e. appellation] 'elite', yet does not gloss over the fact that the Waffen-SS were guilty of atrocities only rivalled by those of the Russians and Japanese. Additionally, there is a useful chapter on the other SS divisions which were equipped with tanks, and appendices covering SS war photographers, the composition of a Panzer regiment, and SS divisional markings"--Jacket.This is an excellent introduction overall to the Panzer Divisions of the Waffen-SS. The writing throughout is superb: The text is clear, precise, and objective.

The book includes well over 100 well-selected photos that enhance the text, including 16 pages of photos in full color, half of which are full-page photos and one is even a two-page spread of a Panzer Mark III (Panzerkampfwagen III) in Nov. 1941 crossing a snow-covered field in front of a farm and followed by 3 troops. These amazing pictures may be worth the price of book itself. The book includes separate chapters on each of the major Panzer Divisions of the Waffen-SS: The 2nd (Das Reich); the 3rd (Totenkopf); the 5th (Wiking); the 9th (Hohenstaufen); the 10th (Frundsberg); and the 12th (Hitlerjugend).
