The book starts with not much detail about the subject but this is what lead in part to Dietrich's mysticism. The author throughout the book has only tried to portray substantiated facts rather than inaccurate untruths. The book gives the reader an insight into one of Adolf Hitlers most trusted soldiers, from his mysterious early years, through his rise up the ladder to his involvement in the infamous Night of the Long Knives, to his charismatic leadership of the Leibstandarte, through Nuremberg and beyond. The book is a good read for those interested in this period of history and gives an insight into the german soldiers attitudes at that time.
