Item description for MURDEROUS ELITE: The Waffen-SS and its record of atrocities by James Pontolillo...

There is a curious lack of published information concerning the numerous wartime atrocities (i.e., violations of international law such as killing noncombatant civilians, surrendering opponents, and prisoners of war) committed by Nazi Germany's military elite, the Waffen-SS. In fact, there are very few books currently in print that examine the nature and commission of war crimes perpetrated by any of the armed forces participating in the Second World War. So, it appears that the nearly forty divisions of the Waffen-SS have not been given any special treatment by military historians, but rather have benefited from an insidious and apparently universal form of ethical tunnel-vision.

Examining an enemy's wartime behavior holds many potential dangers since our own conduct might then also be scrutinized with the goal of uncovering similar transgressions.

This book is not intended to be read from cover to cover as a continuous narrative. Rather it is arranged into well-defined sections to have maximum utility as a reference work. The three main sections -- Atrocities, Unit Histories, and Individuals -- are adopted to guide readers along the most natural paths of inquiry: What happened and where? What was the unit's record of atrocities? What was the individual's involvement in atrocities? This is probably the most comprehensive reference book on the subject.

Reviews - What do customers think about MURDEROUS ELITE: The Waffen-SS and its record of atrocities?

an excellent review of the war crimes of the Waffen-SS  May 30, 2010
This book is a follow on from Goldsworthy's book "Valhalla's warriors" in exposing the crimes committed by the Waffen-SS. With the addition of this book the evidence against the Waffen-SS becomes insurmountable and the apologists will now be hard pressed to defend the Nordic warriors nobly fighting for family and country.

This book leave no doubt to the murderous involvement of the Waffen-SS in the final solution and also their general attitude to the acceptance of the commission of war crimes.

If you want to know the truth about the Waffen-SS then buy this book.Valhalla's Warriors: A History of the Waffen-SS on the Eastern Front 1941-1945
