The Waffen-SS panzer divisions were an integral part of Hitler's last great attack in the West in December 1944. Their sucess included the coordination between tanks and mechanized infantry, the initiative shown by junior commanders and NCO's, and the creation of ad hoc battle groups to spearhead assaults. Ripley illustrates what can be achieved on the battlefield when highly motivated elite troops are equipped with excellent hardware and led by able and quick-thinking commanders. He covers all the Waffen-SS's panzer battles in the West, including Normandy, Arnhem and the Ardennes. It includes 15 full-color maps and 150 black and white photographs of Waffen-SS panzer diviions in the West between 1944-1945.
