Osprey Men-at-Arms 404 : The Waffen-SS (2) : 6. to 10. Divisions
The military branch of the Nazi SS security organisation grew from a handful of poorly regarded infantry battalions in 1939, into a force of more than 30 divisions including units of every type by the end of World War 2. Their battlefield reputation varied widely, from the premier armoured divisions which formed Germany's utterly reliable spearheads on both main fronts, to low quality 'anti-partisan' units. The divisions covered in this the second of four books include the first mountain and cavalry units, and two of the remarkable new Panzer divisions raised in the great 1943 expansion. Illustrated with rare photographs from private collections, the text details their organisation, uniforms and insignia, and summarises their battle record. Text by Gordon Williamson with illustrations by Stephen Andrew.
