5.0 out of 5 stars Die Eisen Faust (The Iron Fist) 16 July 2005
Truly remarkable book written about one of the less famous/infamous Waffen SS divisions. Part one of this story examines the formation of the division up to it's first battles in the Normandy area of France. Packed full of photos both from archive and personal collections it concerntrates not only on the propagander images but also individuals within the division. Good maps and details accurately log the course of the campaign and the part played in it.
The only complaint is that the book is in three languages (English, French and German) and this can be a little frustrating and tiring for the eyes as one sifts over the narrative. The second part of this divisons history has just been released. For my take on the division please go to my website [...]

This books is only for experts on the Normandy campaign or for those interested in the Gotz Von Berlichingen division. It has a comprenhensive detail, packed with new pictures of the division specially of the inmediate months before the invasion.

Worth the value

3.0 out of 5 stars In German, great, English poor. 10 Jun 2006
By David M. Dougherty - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The two volumes of Goetz von Berlichingen are excellent books for the committed historian studying the composition and employment of SS divisions. However, it is recommended that the reader be fluent in either French or German, or both, as the English translations are very poor. For example, frequent use of "Stubaf" appears in English, which is an abbreviation for Sturnbannfueher, but nowhere can the English reader find this out. Where the translator does not know the English word, he uses the French, thereby producing very awkward sentences.

The reader must be familiar with SS ranks and their abbreviations in German, also the German words and abbreviations for German military equipment. The translator, John Lee, is apparently not familiar with the equivalent English military terms. Lastly, the photo captions are frequently mixed up and the English translationss of the captions have different meanings than the German ones. Nonetheless, the books are excellent for the serious historian of Waffen-SS units.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely phenomenal, buy it. 16 July 2008
By Nachtjager - Published on Amazon.com

Details, photos, information not found anywhere else, all in a superbly constructed hardcover book that'll last for ages. Unit histories don't get much better than this. Buy it, this is one you'll not regret! In the years to come, this will be a highly sought after book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good book 25 Aug 2008
By Reinhard - Published on Amazon.com
A very good book, at first I was sceptical about it but after I look in to it I found it amazing , good photo's very detailed reports on the status of the unit. The only down side is that the second volume is very "rare" and cost 3(approximate) time more then the first volume
4.0 out of 5 stars Gotz von Berlichingen:Lorraine Allemagne 21 Dec 2013

THis is Vol.2 .It is written in three languages[French, German and English]By far and away,the English is the worst of the three!
But on the other hand,The photographs are great.As there are only 2 English translations on 17SS,You're limited on availability.
Vol.1 is decently priced.Vol. 2 is a different animal!!! If you can find it.The price is unreal.It is not worth the price some booksellers
want for it!!Would I recommend this book?ONLY ....ONLY,if the price is right!
