Book Description

1 Jan 2005 Archive (Book 6)
High-quality photographs on semi-matte art paper. Visual diary of Hitler's elite force. Presented in chronological sequence This sixth volume follows soldiers of the 1st SS LAH and 2nd SS Das Reich Panzer Division in combat during the Battle of Kursk, July 1943. Formed by Heinrich Himmler in 1940 from the Leibstandarte, SS Verfungstruppe and the Totenkopfe Standarten, the Waffen-SS was originally meant to be a racially pure organisation, but this idea was abandoned due to the need for more troops. While initially intended to concentrate on internal matters that threatened Germany, the Waffen-SS mainly served as frontline combat troops alongside the regular German army. They were considered the elite of the German armed forces in World War II and were involved in almost continuous combat. Printed on deluxe European semi-matte art paper for unparalleled photographic reproduction, each page literally pulls you into the images, making you feel as though you are a part of the action. This documentary-style series presents the photographs in the actual sequence in which they were taken, creating a visual diary unlike anything previously published on the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite unlike the usual pictures of war 3 May 2008
By David W. Lang - Published on Amazon.com
Waffen-SS Kursk 1943, Volume 6, by Remy Spezzano, is part of an astounding series devoted to photographs of the largest tank battle in history. The publisher has every right to be proud of this series: Using 28 rolls of recently discovered combat film, it has assembled a collection of unique, informative, and evocative images.

The book begins with a very brief summary of Operation Citadel, the German army's last major offensive against Russia, but the reader needs no knowledge of the battle. The pictures here are universal in what they convey, and the explanatory notes are compact and informative.

Many of the pictures are quite unlike the usual images one finds even in comprehensive pictorial books. Some of the photos, such as the SS NCO comforting a duckling, impart a sense of humanity to those who may not deserve it. A very highly recommended series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waffen SS at Kursk 8 July 2007
By K. Becker - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
These books are an excellent series. Some great in action photos and a great many of individual shots of Waffen SS soldiers and Soviet prisoners taken during the battle. These are not the usual heroic shots but of normal men and they are very haunting. To see SS men and Soviets as real soldiers and real men and not the stereotypical view we are used to seeing was as I said a very haunting experience. There are some who may find that very boring as they want photos of panzers racing across fields of burning tanks maybe disappointed. Still there are some great shots of armour, half tracks and artillery are included for those who are looking for a kit to build. If you're a serious historian who is looking for something a little deeper than shots of tanks then buys these books and look into the eyes of these men who fought the battle and are all now gone from the earth. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Series 15 Feb 2007
By A. Crisp - Published on Amazon.com

I purchased all 6 books in the series, at the time of writing this I had received Vol 3 to 6, the photos are all in black and white none of which I had seen before quality is good with a basic caption under each photo and a more detail information regarding the photo and what stage of the battle is at the rear.

Like all of the books in this archive series, The picture and captions are interesting. The pictures transfer the feelings of the battle as best has any I have seen.
