The Nazi Germany Regime was brutal and inhumane. The atrocities that were committed by the Nazi’s will remain a shameful chapter in history for possibly centuries to come. This book takes a look at the SS Waffen, Hitler’s elite forces. Beginning with a coup at the start of the war, the elite SS Waffen came to be known as the best and the most brutal. While it had it’s start with pure German forces, the Waffen later accepted those from other sympathetic countries. These are some of their stories. There is the story of a Belgium soldier that started a revolution in his home country and later joined the Nazi ranks. He continued to recruit for their cause while leading troops. Starting as a low man in the trenches he worked his way to be a trusted leader. Read his story of narrowly escaping the Soviet Union and his attempt to save the lives of others. Then there is the story of a disgruntle Austrian that was itching to fight for Germany. After his home state changed to Italian soil, he served his time with the Italian army before journeying to Germany. He is known as the King of Close Combat for his time on the battle field. He has a recorded record of 84 close combat encounters. This is not days but separate battles in which hand to hand combat was needed. What would drive a man to risk his life so many times? This book takes a look at the other side of the lines without judgement or endorsement. If you ever wondered what happened on the other side of the battle, this is the perfect place to start.

From the start though, the author lets us know that his aim is not to glorify the Nazi’s but to give an equal telling. I can support that. History is very important and if we are going to understand it, we need to see both sides of the story. There is no glorification of the Nazi crimes but there is plenty to see here. The stories really pulled be in and I almost forgot that I was reading about the enemy. I loved the casual academic style that this is written in and while the topic is risky, I think he handled it well. Great book!”- Shawna H (Virginia, United States) “There is undoubtedly a risk taken when writing anything less than a scathing assessment of the Nazi’s. In the case of this book it was a risk well taken. The author did a superb job of not glossing over the actions of the Third Reich’s beasts but also giving them a fair shake in the process. I have to say that I learned a thing or two as well about the challenges that faced the Germans. I enjoyed this book through and through.” - Graham (London, United Kingdom)

    The main question I have for this book is how was it ever published? I felt like I was peer reviewing a college classmates essay. Aside from the blatant typos and grammatical errors, which I do not hold against the author because I read it on Kindle and this is common for Kindle books, the writing is very poor. I feel like the author thought he was writing very eloquently but it was actually just confusing. The true crime the author commits, however, is his engagement with counter factual history The main question I have for this book is how was it ever published?

I feel like the author thought he was writing very eloquently but it was actually just confusing. The true crime the author commits, however, is his engagement with counter factual history. Throughout the entire course of the book he is making claims of “if this person had not been there then the battle would have been lost.” That is a History 101 no-no (in all fairness I think I learned this in History 248- Shoutout to Caroline Shaw) The author also repeatedly states things that we, as readers, are apparently supposed to just take for granted. I remember one particularly egregious paragraph where he said the “2 reasons for this happening were this.” He then explained the first point over a couple pages and the second point in 1 paragraph. Are you not going to support your points at all? There were numerous examples of this. Also, if I have never heard of an author, I usually do not look them up because I do not want the author’s credentials to influence my thoughts on the book. I don’t know this author but looked him up afterwards and he seemed to be a nobody. Not surprised, his historical methods get 1 out of 5 stars. Would have given the book itself 1 star with the exception of the stories being rather interesting and unknown to me in some cases, so 2 stars are warranted. 3 starts would be criminal, much like this book Note: this book annoyed me so much I am coming back for an unprecedented book review update. Going back to his historical methods- I feel like he did 0 research and just played up every stereotype of Germans, the Wehrmacht, and the SS. It was like reading what a high schooler thought Nazi Germany was.

Among Jenkins' book Interesting Accounts of Combat in World War Two! Ryan Jenkins, an accomplished historian and gifted writer, is the author of an extensive series of concise historical texts regarding almost every major aspect of World War 2 (WW 2). Each book in the series is designed to educate the reader about specific critical battles, events, turing points and so forth that transpired during the course of the war and to encourage readers to conduct further research and reading into the war. Among Jenkins' books are a series of books that focus on the exploits of individual fighting men and women from the US, our Allies, and Germany. This particular offering includes a collecton of accounts of members of the elite and infamous Waffen SS. Please note that the author, publisher, and myself do not advocate ideas or actions associated with Hitler, Nazism, racism, anti-semitism, or anything else associated with the Thrid Reich and our only interest is historical in nature. Those who are unfamilar with history are doomed to repeat it or something like that! Jenkins' explains from the very beginning the SS holds primary responsibilities for the conduct of the Holocaust and all manner of other war crimes and that all SS men and women hold varying degrees of guilt for the most gastly crimes commited by the Thrid Reich. Jenkins' also provides an excellent description of the SS organization, leadership, doctrine, responsibilities, duties, training, crimes, punishnents, etc. That being said, a very large portion of the SS were members of elite warfighting divisions called Waffen (German for Armed) SS. The author esplains that if there ever was a name that instilled fear and respect, it was the name Waffen-SS (“Armed SS”). During the Second World War, these elite troops saw action on every front except Africa. It is also noteworthy that these people wore the SS insigna with pride (to include all having SS tatoos on their arns), knowing full well that the Soviets, Americans, and others they were fighting against would execute them, on the spot, if they were taken prisoner. Based on documented evidence the author details the accounts of 25 Waffen SS members in combat that are nothing short of extraordinary accounts of courage and bravery. Their exploits under fire display heroism,, skill, and ferocity that deserve to be told and known. As a combat veteran I appreciated this book very much. My experience is that a soldier has a tendency to denigrate and dehumanize their enemy. Killing another person is hard, mentally, morally, spiritually, and physically. You live with it for the rest of your life. We need more books that put a human face, humanity to our enemies. This would make warfare difficult! I think making war ought to be hard. People with an interest in history will enjoy this book.

    Could have been better The book talked about the Waffen SS, but the second half ended up like reading a series of biographies without always explaining relationships and positions within the SS and Nazi party. Too much on their early life and little on what influenced these key people to develop these values and beliefs. I felt like I was reading highlights of these individuals, but not much meat to add to the bones. Editing of the book was poor.

I felt like I was reading highlights of these individuals, but not much meat to add to the bones. Editing of the book was poor. Many typos that should have been caught before publishing. In one case an individual was credited with commanding an SS unit between 1956 and 1958. This was probably somewhat difficult. Another was commanding a unit beginning in 1914. The grammar was not always correct which required re-reading the sentence to understand its meaning. In summary, you will get an overview of certain key people in the SS, but you hardly scratch the surface.

    The editing has much to be desired: incomplete sentences, missing words, etc. But most disturbing was the in the "Conclusion" section, where the author (or editor) wrote that the Holocaust has been "exaggerated". The author made a point on several occasions that he not only distained the Nazi racist belief system, but condemned the crimes perpetrated thereby. However, the above statement certainly indicates he tends toward the side of Holocaust-deniers.

I found the overall praise for the military achievements of the Waffen-SS, the minimizing of Allied, particularly the Soviet and American capability against those German forces, coupled with this statement/attitude to be appalling and worthy of condemnation in its own right. I would not recommend this publication for general readership, especially to one minimally acquainted with the crimes of the Hitler regime (such as those of generations beyond Baby-boomers). Shame on you!

    Disappointing at best Was expecting insight into the history and inner workings of the SS. Instead, got a poorly written mini biography of several SS members. Full of grammatical errors, typos, misspellings and incoherent structure. Reads like a middle schooler who just copied random parts from a Wikipedia search. Even though I read this from Kindle Unlimited, I felt like it was a waste.

    Randal Bennett

    Better writing from high school papers The book purports to be the story of the SS in their own words, but other than a few sparsely scattered citations from other works, it is entirely the author's own words. Further, those words are poorly chosen, poorly arranged, and suffering from lack of editorial attention. How this book managed to make it to a 4th edition in this condition leaves one stunned. Don't bother and save your money.

    Terrible Poorly written. Terrible grammar and probably wasn’t proof read before publishing. The contents are just a collection of individual biographies and nothing more. Glad I read it for free

    A brief resume of some German military men Not unlike the prowess of military men that serve their country, these German stories embed their skills and experience to survive in battles.

    Poorly Edited While it was interesting to read about the war from the German point of view, the book seemed to merely list facts, not tell a cohesive story. I don't know if the book was translated to English, or just very poorly edited, but the grammatical errors were extremely distracting.

    Must read. I have always been interested in the German side. This book is not only a great recounting of those brave men's actions, but he does so without either side's propaganda affecting their story. I recommend it to anyone trying to gain a deeper insight into the most elite fighting force Europe has ever seen.

    An interesting and objective read about two soldiers in the Waffen-SS. Definitely worth the hour or so it takes to get through it.
