Overview
-

In March 1943 the three senior Divisions of the Waffen-SS – Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler (Bodyguard), Das Reich (Empire) and Totenkopf (Death’s Head) – were fighting against Stalin’s armies in the Ukraine under the command of SS Lieutenant General Paul Hausser. Aware of the need to create more divisions for his army and under constant pressure from Heinrich Himmler for more troops, Adolf Hitler chose this moment to order the formation of a new SS Panzer corps. This meticulously researched book documents the actions of the Corps throughout the last offensives of the war. Strongly recommended for those interested in the personality of Hitler’s most trusted armored and armoured-infantry field commanders.
