I am wrapping up reading SONS OF THE REICH by Michael Reynolds. In it he makes several statements that Hermann Balck was no friend of the Waffen SS and even goes so far as to blame him for instigating the "Cuffband Order" in March of 1945. I have read in several other sources that Balck did no like the Waffen SS but he seemed to like having them under his command. My question is, why did he have such a dislike for the Waffen SS? Was it just a philosophical dislike since they were an organ of the Nazi Party, or was it because of some incident earlier in the war?
Thanks in advance for your help.
