95 Walther, Herbert. With Generalfeldmarschall von Manstein, General von Manteuffel and Heinz Hohne. THE WAFFEN-SS: A PICTORIAL DOCUMENTATION.
Schiffer, West Chester, Pennyslvania, 1990. 
238 pp, small 4to (10 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0887402046 Patterned endpapers. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. "(A) pictorial and factual documentation of the engagement of young men standing in the front line during World War II. Men, fighting as soldiers and innumerably losing their lives on all battle fronts in World War II. Also, this book does not tell of the organizations they belonged to and of their criminal leadership, but of the young soldiers who - being deceived for their ideals - got right into the twilight of the world's opinion after the end of the war. Five hundred exciting photographs never before published, illustrate the battles of a troop of which no one - not even its adversaries on the battlefield - denied its bravery and devotion. Photographs of unbelievable impression, taken during heavy attacks or massive tank battles, taken while invading ditches or taken while heavy defensive battles took place. These are not posed p h o tographs: The SS War reporters literally took these pictures in the middle of fights, with MPi sitting beside them. There are photographs from all fronts, and of all divisions. Photos of well known troop commanders of the Waffen-SS, illustr a ti on s of all weapons and vehicles used are shown as well. Never before has a book shown these divisions and their direct connection to battle. This book was put together from photographs which were to be destroyed on order of the Reichssicherh ei ts- Hau pt amt in 1945. The negatives were actually burnt, mostly by accident. However, approximately 100,000 contacts remained untouched. The best have been chosen for this book. This is a pictorial book which will fascinate everyone who app rec iate s th e s ingle photograph as a documentation." minor wrinkling at bottom of spine three tiny dints/scuff at top edge of boards.
