Description

The security units of the Third Reich were many and diverse, yet often an oversimplified view is projected of these organizations. This title provides a detailed and informed picture of the variety of operations and duties, as well as the motivation and behaviour of the men involved. It charts the experiences of typical World War II security forces and police soldiers - from the routine of military traffic duty, to combating partisans and resistance fighters. It covers the military police of the armed forces proper and the Waffen-SS, the combat units of the German State Police, the SD Sicherheitsdienst, the Schutzmannschaft units and the extreme and dreaded anti-partisan units "Dirlewanger" and "Kaminski".
