Item description for WAFFEN SS DIVISIONS, 1939-1945 (The Essential Vehicle Identification Guide) by Chris Bishop...

Illustrated with detailed artworks of vehicles and their markings, The Essential Vehicle Identification Guide: Waffen-SS Divisions, 1939-45 is the definitive study of the equipment and organization of Germany's elite Waffen-SS divisions during World War II.

Organized chronologically by division and formation date, the book describes in depth the various models of tank and other armored and soft vehicles in service with the 'fighting' SS, with listings of unit commanders, vehicle types and numbers, and unit structure. Each divisional section is further broken down by campaign, accompanied by orders of battle, a brief divisional history of the campaign, and any specific unit markings.

Every SS division that saw combat is featured, from well-known units such as the elite Das Reich and Wiking divisions, to lesser-known divisions, such as the 11th Waffen-SS Panzer Division Nordland and the Albanian-recruited 21st Waffen-SS Gebirgs-Division Skanderbeg.

With information boxes accompanying the full-color artworks, all drawn to the same scale for easy comparison, The Essential Vehicle Identification Guide: Waffen-SS Divisions, 1939-45 is a key reference guide for modelers and military history enthusiasts with an interest in the Waffen-SS divisions of World War II.

Reviews - What do customers think about WAFFEN SS DIVISIONS, 1939-1945 (The Essential Vehicle Identification Guide)?

The non essential essential guide  Jan 27, 2008
I didn't mind the first volume on the Panzer Divisions of this 3 part set but by the time this one has come out I think they have run out of colour plates. This is meant to be a vehicle guide but there are only so many times I can see the same Flak or Pak gun reprinted and presented as belonging to different divisions. If you're a keen reader of German armour who'll easily pick up the many glaring mistakes such as the GD Panther 01 which is printed a number of times, the 251/9 1144 which was a 2SS vehicle presented belonging to more than one division. Surely they could have done more colour plates with vehicles from the more photograhped divisions. I appreciate it would be virtually impossible to get an accurate photo from each division but to just make it up seems a bit lazy. I've seen the same trucks, kubelwagens, Pak guns, bikes through the whole series and that's just either laziness or poor editing. I think I have seen the same 250/9 and 251/9 from 19 Panzer Division at Kursk printed at least half a dozen times through the whole series and that's bad. If these are your first books on german armour ok, but there are better ones out there and these will eventually end up in the bottom of your pile never to be read again. sorry Mr Bishop
Waffen SS Divisions 1939 - 1945  Jan 18, 2008
Not a bad general reference  Nov 23, 2007
This book is a good general reference to the Waffen-SS. It deals with all the divisions albeit in a breif way. The illustrations are good as are the organisational tables. More of a general reference then a vehicle identification guide, but still worth the money.
A mess  Nov 19, 2007
This book isn't sure what it wants to be. It has a little on Waffen SS divisional history, a mix of German vehicles showing camoflouge patterns and a little about unit organization. Some pages just show a picture of the same six tanks and a note what size of a unit had six tanks which doesn't add anything to the book. It could have been a book on the SS divisions, vehicle camoflouge or unit organization but mixing these all together in small amounts makes for a disappointing book.
Waffen-SS Divisions 1939-45  Nov 15, 2007
This book gives a brief history of the Waffen-SS Divisions of WW II, with very good illustrations and pictures. A good book for general information, but not alot of detail on any one division.

I would recommend this book for someone looking for some easy reading on the Waffen-SS.
