The book goes into details of the formation, deployment and combat actions of the 2nd SS Panzer Division Das Reich.

Das Reich was the first Waffen SS division created and was a major force where ever it fought.

The unit as formed in September 1939 as the war began and fought on most fronts from Poland, France, Balkans, Russia, back to France and then back to the eastern front at the end of the war.

I found this book fascinating and made me aware of a lot of information I have never read before. Das Reich was a formidable division and prove its worth and bravery on all the fronts it fought. It was used as a firefighting group on many occasions and resisted against the odds on many occasions.

There are a lot of pictures and illustrations that make the book even more interesting.

I recommend this book to everyone with a deep interest the war and the formation and use of German divisions. The only downside was it could have had a little more details or insight into the actions it fought in, eyewitness/diary type write-ups to give it more feeling.

Thanks go to Casemate Publishing for providing this book to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them
