Wellingborough, 1st ed., 1986. 200 pp., frontis., cold., photo-plates + a wealth of b&w photo-ills. D.j., 24 x 21cm. Nr.FINE. Thundering across the Russian steppes, the men of the elite Waffen-SS Panzer Divisions were seen by Hitler and Himmler as latter-day knights in armour battling against Asiatic Communism. This book relates the individual histories of each of the seven divisions, giving details of equipment, uniforms, commanders and individual battles. 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, plus a bibliography and an index. There are over 200 photographs, some in colour, of the various Divisions in action.
