Ss: Roll of Infamy
A Biographical Guide to Leading Members of the Ss
SS: Roll of Infamy is a complete alphabetical list of the leading members of the Third Reich's Schutzstaffel (Protection Squad), from the early days of National Socialism in the 1920s to the fall of Berlin in May 1945. This compact volume examines in detail the sadists and psychopaths of the SS, such as Ilse Koch at Buchenwald concentration camp and Rudolf Hoess, the murderous commandant at Auschwitz. Through these and others, SS: Roll of Infamy builds a complete picture of the individuals who staffed the various organizations of the SS, including the Gestapo and concentration camp system. All the leading members of the SS's armed wing, the Waffen-SS, are also featured, including men such as `Sepp' Dietrich, the commander of the elite SS-Leibstandarte Division; tank ace Michael Wittmann; and leader of the SS-Hitlerjugend Division, Kurt `Panzer' Meyer. Illustrated with over 200 black-and-white photographs, SS: Roll of Infamy is a complete biographical guide to the men who made up Hitler's notorious paramilitary organization.
