EXCELLENT WAFFEN-SS PHOTO MATERIAL OF THE FINEST KIND FROM THE CAMPAIGN AT THE WESTERN FRONT AGAINST THE FRENCH AND BRITISH!

This extremely hard to find 8-1/4 x 11-1/8 inch, 120 pages hardcover book was published 1941 as a remembrance book of the heroic battles of the SS-Totenkopf Division throughout France in the western campaign against the French Army and British Expeditionary Troops in 1940. The entire book is filled with fantastic photos by SS war correspondents (Bauer, Bonda, Ege) with many close-ups of Waffen-SS uniforms, SS weapons (from rifles to tank details) and SS field gear, even the SS field bakery, the SS butcher and SS food inspector are shown! All photos are either full page or half page photos, even double page photos. The book was published 1941 by Chr. Belser Ver-lag in Stuttgart for the SS Führungshauptamt in Berlin.

This scarce publication contains very little text, the excellent photos are self explaining enough and give an excellent impression of the short but intense campaign of the SS-Totenkopf Division under SS-General Eicke, nicknamed "Papa (Dad) Eicke" by his troops! Eicke is shown on several of the photos, other pictures show SS vehicles, SS troops in action (machine gunners, SS men firing mortars, etc.), SS troops marching (in the field and through des-troyed French towns), wrecked enemy tanks and dead British soldiers, wounded SS men, SS men resting, SS motorcycle recon troops, SS pioneers building bridges and crossing a river in rubber boats and much more!

This unique book is a must for anyone interested in Third Reich and Waffen-SS history as well as for every collector of Waffen-SS uniforms and helmets and for those who have an interest in weapons and field gear used by the Waffen-SS!

The front and back cover have some stain spots and it seems as if the back was professionally replaced (not a cheap scotch tape job!) but all the pages are intact and in very good condition.
