Hello,
In last weeks, I’ve received the following books, and I warmly recommend them for all those who have an interest in the Waffen-SS history
They are very different in content, but each one is a contribution to history. Despite all that has already been published on these subjects, always new informations and unpublished pictures which give an additional attraction to these books.
Totenkopf. Volume 2: The Structure, Development and Personalities of the 3. SS-Panzer Division. by Mark Yerger & Ignacio Arrondo published by Helion
Marten van Dijken "Die SS-Totenkopfverbände" Eine Dokumentation Band 1 1933-1937 Published by author. German text
Panzer Normandie 44 Série SS-Panzer-Regiment 2 “Das Reich”. by Stephan Cazenave French text
Career, crimes and trial of SS-Sturmbannführer Gustav Knittel Commander of the Aufklärungsabteilung ‘LSSAH’ by Timo R. Worst

Marten has done a tremendous job on the Totenkopfverbände and some unknown aspects of these formations. There are many personalities who during the war will have assignments in the Totenkopf division or other Waffen-SS units.
Volume 2 Totenkopf by Mark Yerger and Ignacio Arrondo, is a must as the previous ones .
Stephane Cazenave also offered a remarkable account on the Das Reich’s Panzer regiment in Normandy.
For Timo Worst's book, it is difficult to say more than what has already been said. See the link :
An exciting book that shows the double face of the Waffen-SS. Strong testimonials and facts that recall others such as those of the Das Reich in France in 1944.

just received "Das SA-Feldjägerkorps" by Wolfgang Edler von Zander 317 pages Melchior Verlag
Quite good on organisation and activities. Many datas. Very well referenced primary sources with numerous documents. And a lot of pictures from the collection of his uncle a former member of FJK.

At the level of personal datas on leadership, the book is very poor out of Oberführer Fritsch chief of FJK and relative of the author. I waited more infos upon Staff FJK Korps and der FJK Abteilungsleiter and Kp Chef. But no infos.

I recommand this book for those who have interest in uniformed police forces.
Best regards

Georges

Hello,

Since it's basically a SS&Polizei related work, I've thought the readers here would be eventually interested in our new book

"Globocnik’s Men in Italy, 1943-45"

published by Schiffer this year.

It also contains a lot of unpublished pictures of men belonings to the Abteilung R (which originated from Aktion Reinhard) and the SS-Wachmannschaften of the OZAK wearing peculiar SS and Ordnungspolizei uniforms, along with very rare pictures of men that belonged to SS-u.Pol.Kdr. Istrien, Stabskp. HSSPF Triest, SS/Polizei sponsored militias known as landeseigene Verbände, I.Btl./SS-Pol.Rgt.Bozen, etc.etc. along with unit insigna, SS/Polizei armours and vehicles, Then and Now comparatives shots and much more.

For more infos:

Very best regards
Tom

Hello everybody, dear Marten


I received my copy from Marten van Dijken, Volume III of the Totenkopfverbände 1937 – 1939 some days before and I must say, a very interesting and as usual well documented “finish” of the history of this part of the SS!

With some astonishing details in 1939 that “didn´t caught my eye before”, I have to admit.
But as a fact, in e v e r y volume, I discovered n e w facts, I didn´t k now before!
So I more than glad, to have this work “in one piece” now! :thumbsup:



Unfortunately, now that “the end has come”, I feel a little bit sad, too :(
because I would like to read more about the now “verstärkten Totenkopfstandarten”, the Rekrutenstandarte and the Training units until they were incorporated in the Waffen-SS in this well researched and documented way, too!

So maybe, there might be a future Volume about this time frame of the Totenkopfstandarten??? 8-)


With all the best yours Roland
