While the Waffen-SS has become legendary as an elite fighting force in World War II, there are few accounts that present the human face of those fearsome formations. Erich Stahl was a professional journalist assigned to cover some of the most famous of these units - the 1st SS Panzer Division 'Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler,' the 5th SS Panzer Division 'Wiking,' and the Dutch and Ukrainian volunteers serving with the SS - but with a twist: he actually pulled duty as a soldier in the front lines, where he experienced all the hardships, privations, and gut-wrenching emotions of the men who fought the Soviets.
