This is far too heavy going to be regarded as a ‘coffee-table’ book, but for the reader with a more in-depth interest in WWII, it is a must. It is interesting to read an account from the German point of view. Throughout the war the author served with several elite Waffen-SS units and so knows his stuff from first-hand. The style is a bit dry but then again it is crammed with information not easily available elsewhere and is a blow by blow history of one of the finest fighting units of the War. Well worth having.
