1st book-Twilight of the Gods-by Thorolf Hillblad.A first-person account of swedish SS volunteer Erik Wallin.Very good book,well written,lots of original pics.
Mostly 1944-45,eastern front battles in Pomerania and Berlin with SS Division Nordland.Excellant book,buy it.
2nd book.-Panzer Gunner,etc. by Bruno Friesen.Story of an immigrant from Germany to Canada,then back as a child.In action with the 25th Pz Rgt,7th Pzr Division.Also his life upon returning to Canada.Good book,with many pictures and maps.He details the TDs he served in,and the good and bad points of each,also how and why they were deployed.Good book,get it.
#3d book-Fire on the Eastern Front.I do not have this yet,but have added it to the list.The Dutch SS has an interesting history,looks good.
Also recomend-A Frozen Hell,by William Trotter.It is about the Russo-Finnish war of 1939-1940
-Blood Red Snow,by Gunter Koschorrek Memoirs of a machine-gunner on the Eastern front,from Stalingrad til wars end.Pictures,maps.Very good,I would really recomend this one.
Black Edelweiss,by Johann Voss. Originally written while a POW in 45-46,this is the story of a young SS mountain trooper,fighting in Finnland,and what happened after Finnland signed the armistice with the USSR,leaving the Germans in a real bad position.Maps and pictures.This has the advantage of being written while it was still fresh,and the author was facing up to what had been going on in Germany.Highly recomended.
If you get a lot from Amazon,it is worth getting the prefered shipping.There is a yearly,one-time cost.There is more than books there,almost anything can be gotten at good prices.Last year I was out in Calif and my tape measure broke.I am particular about my tools,and it meant a 25 mile drive over the mountains to the hardware store.The woman I worked for asked for the particulars,and it was there before I started the next day.And cheaper.
If you want any more recomendation,I have a lot of books,mostly history of all periods,mainly WW II eastern front,leaning towards soldiers memoirs.Also technical books on the same.Many are out of print,but some are being re-printed.Last time I checked,there were about 10,000 books here.Holy crap!!
