Known for their fighting qualities, fanaticism and brutality, the Waffen-SS evolved from Hitler's personal bodyguard in 1929 into an army which spearheaded the assault on the Soviet Union and staunchly defended the Reich in the final days of the Second World War. Compiled from several specialist Osprey publications, this volume presents a comprehensive and fully illustrated history of the SS, from its origins to the aftermath of the war, with details of its uniforms, insignia, weapons and equipment.
