  • Includes key data on all constituent parts of the Waffen-SS

    Most people would associate the SS with Heinrich Himmler, but the latter was not the first (or the last) leader of this infamous body. The SS Databook: 1923–1945 examines the history and development of the Schutzstaffel from its origin as Hitler’s personal bodyguard to its growth into a millions-strong organization by the war’s end in 1945.

    Broken down by the key constituent parts of the SS, including the police, concentration camps, security services, Waffen-SS, slave labour, Einsatzgruppen and so forth, the book includes exhaustive reference tables, diagrams, maps and charts, presenting all the core subject information in easy-to-follow formats.

    The SS Databook: 1923–1945 will be an essential reference guide for anyone interested in the history or demographics of this infamous organization.
