French Text: The author traces here the complete record of this SS armored division which was originally composed of concentration camp guards. The Totenkopf fought first in France in 1940 and was then sent to the eastern front from 1941 - 1945. There it was engaged in some of the most ferocious battles, Kharkov, Kursk, Warsaw and Vienna being the most famous. Totenkopf finally surrendered in May 1945 to the US Army, which immediately delivered them over to the Soviets. This fanatical division s history is littered with atrocities, the most famous being the massacre of British prisoners at Paradise Farm. In the book you will find a complete itinerary for the division during its service in France, detailed accounts of all the atrocities, eyewitness accounts of actual witnesses that crossed its path, testimonies of veterans of the campaigns on the Eastern Front and finally, a complete organization chart of the division with all the regimental and battalion commanders. This detailed text is accompanied by an astonishing collection of some 800 photographs."
