An huge and exhaustive look at the bizarre organisation that was at the heart of the Nazi regime. This book exposes almost every detail, including the political infighting, weird rituals and strange personalities that went into the development of this organisation. Not nearly as organised as generally fabled to be, the SS at times survied despite itself.

Not really aimed at a general reader, this book is more a specialist publication, however it would be of use to anyone trying to research the Nazis or specifically the SS. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0141390123, Paperback)

The SS was the terror of Europe. Swearing eternal allegiance to Adolf Hitler, it infiltrated every aspect of German life and was responsible for the deaths of millions. This gripping history recounts the strange and, at times, absurd true story of Hitler's SS. It exposes an organization that was not directed by some devilishly efficient system but was the product of accident, inevitability, and the random convergence of criminals, social climbers, and romantics. Above all, this eye-opening book describes in fascinating detail the chaotic political conditions that allowed the SS-despite rivalries and bizarre conditions-to assume and exercise unaccountable power.
