Item description for SS HITLERJUGEND: The History of the 12th SS Division 1943 - 1945 by Rupert Butler...

SS Hitlerjugend is an in-depth examination of the unit formed in 1943 from members of the Hitlerjugend (Hitler Youth) organization. The majority of the division's recruits were 17 year olds who were fanatically devoted to the Nazi cause and the Fuhrer. The book explores the background to the unit's formation, the type of young men it recruited, the key figures in the division and its organization. It also looks at the uniforms and insignia that members of the division wore to distinguish themselves in the battlefield.

SS Hitlerjugend also provides a full combat record of the division, which fought on both fronts in World War II. The book outlines the unit;s involvement in the defense of Normandy, when allied troops were shocked by the youth of the enemy; the battle for Caen and the catastrophe of the Falaise Gap; refitting in Germany before the Ardennes Offensive and its service on the Eastern Front at the end of the War, fighting to recapture Budapest. Illustrated with rare photographs and with an authoritative text, SS Hitlerjugend is a definitive history of one of Germany's most fanatical fighting units in World War II.

Reviews - What do customers think about SS HITLERJUGEND: The History of the 12th SS Division 1943 - 1945?

This book is Junk!!!  Jan 13, 2006
This book has a lot of bad information i.e. 600 solders came out of Falaise, Ya right his guy has know idea what he is talking about. He also show pictures with no proof that there from 12th SS "HJ". I love the picture on page 142 of the fallschirmjager, the picture says it's a "HJ" panzer grenadier. Ha right!! But this book has some goods pictures of the "HJ". But most of it is good for a laugh. If you want to learn about the 12th SS "HITLERJUGEND", you might want to get a book written by someone who was there, Like Hubert Meyer or Kurt Meyer.
A thorough and informative examination  May 22, 2003
SS-Hitlerjugend: The History Of The Twelfth SS Division 1943-45 by Third Reich and World War II expert Rupert Butler is a close and meticulously accurate study of the German military unit formed in 1943 from veterans of the Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler Division and members of the Hitlerjugend (Hitler Youth) organization. Studying the fanaticism of these mostly seventeen-year-old volunteers, and drawing upon data such as a full combat record of the division, SS-Hitlerjugend is a thorough and informative examination. No personal or academic German Military History reference collection can be considered complete without the inclusion of Rupert Butler's SS-Hitlerjugend.
