This book covers the complete history of the 3rd SS Panzer Regiment - part of the Totenkopt Division. The subject is approached from the men's stories, profiles, battles and weapons used.

The "first person" accounts are the highlight of this book. It is written in such a way that it draws you in and you are there experiencing what they did. I must admit I enjoyed this so much and learnt a lot about the feeling, day to day routines as well as the battles. The soldier's profiles are another great way to help you understand who these people were.

The regiment was formed in late 1942 in France but was transferred to the Eastern front and was involved in many major campaigns and battles in this part of the war. The chapters are broken down well and each covers major events and periods in the regiment's history.

The illustrations, photos and documents are impressive and significantly added to understanding the whole period in history for these men.

I cannot recommend this book enough. It is a treasure trove of information and photos for everyone with an interest in WWII. I must again say that the "first person" accounts really do make this book such a incredible read!

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