IMHO Better than the one * given to it here. There is only one decent source on Direlwanger in English and that is "The Cruel Hunters" by Maclean The Cruel Hunters - S.S.Sonderkommando Dirlewanger: Hitler's Most Notorious Anti-Partisan Unit (Schiffer Military History). I also have that and feel this book complements it well. I would say that the early period is not brillianly covered but that is down to a genuine lack of source material. This book still has more than Maclean on that time and covers the history of the unit well and fills some gaps. It is not a list of actions and accounts (but watch "Come and See" and you will know all you need to about it's modus operandi Come and See [DVD]) and I don't think a list and details of it's countless atrocities would help. It does have some good personal stuff and I found that interesting and also info on the period when it was a Waffen SS "Division".

On the downside it can be a hard read, partly due to the psychological analysis and partly due to the fact it was not written in English. I'm not criticising the translation but it can be dry at times. I'm not sure I agree with all the authors conclusions but there are interesting theories put forward and they are well worth considering.

It could have scored higher with more detail but bearing in mind the size of the unit (at the start it's no more than 150 men in an Army of pushing 2 million on the Eastern Front) I don't know if that information actually exists.

A hard read but overall worth the effort.

Format: Hardcover
Thought the book would go into more details on the combat/crimes of the unit rather than go round it. not worth the price or the effort to read it. Bad buy.
