Re: New Norbert Számvéber books.

If I am not mistaken, I recalled the author co-wrote one of the most definitive books on Hungarian Waffen SS but sadly it was never translated to English though :(

Re: New Barbarossa Book

Hi Klaus, I want to say that I had Frank Ellis's book on Stalingrad and it was very well written. His Stalingrad book is a very refreshing study on the Battle of Stalingrad despite numerous books on it (Erickson, Beavor, Gates etc.) Ellis mentioned about the myth of Operation Lowe (breakout from Sta...

Re: New Peiper book by Westemeier???

I thread on this one carefully since Westemeier had already written 2 books on Jochen Peiper (the first one, was pro-Peiper, the 2nd one was anti-Peiper)

My suggestion is to wait for Danny S. Parker's upcoming book on Peiper in 2013/2014

Re: 32 SS Division ,,30 Januar,,

Georg Tessin's book on Waffen SS OoB should have snippets of these units but other than that, don't expect much on English language secondary sources... Dr. Norbert Svamzeber book on Hungarian Waffen SS (in Hungarian but I can't recall the title but it seems it is out of print at the moment) should ...
