Overview

Written by Swords to the Knight's Cross holder and last regimental commander Otto Weidinger, Comrades to the End is the complete history of SS-Regiment "Der Fhrer." One of the original infantry regiments of the pre-war SS-Verfgungstruppe (Special Purpose Troops), "Der Fhrer" was formed in 1938 and fought throughout the war as a component of Division "Das Reich." Being among the most successful and decorated regiments of the Waffen-SS, this complete history was written with the full assistance of four highly decorated regimental commanders. In addition to Otto Weidinger, portions of the text were contributed by Georg Keppler (Knight's Cross), Sylvester Stadler (Swords to the Knight's Cross) and Otto Kumm (Swords to the Knights Cross). From its creation from primarily Austrian recruits through the Western Campaign, to the bitter battles in Russia where it was almost completely destroyed, the authors explain the engagements of this famous unit in full detail. Later it fought in Normandy and finally in Austria at the end of the war as one of the last fully battle ready units of the Waffen-SS. This classic study is now available for the first time in a complete English edition. With a preface by famed Waffen-SS commander Paul Hausser, the detailed text is illustrated by more than twenty regimental maps in addition to photographs.

    Views from first hand expierience

    A great book for military history buffs! Mr. weidinger was there through it all, and writes about. They were always where the action was, jumping around where the army command needed them most. A superior fighting force, who given the right circumstances very well could have dominated the world. Like it or not, they were the best soldiers of their time. Mr. Weidinger did tend to keep more with the military side of the story, about the only thing I regret about the book. I was hoping to hear more about the men themselves, their stories. Nevertheless I highly suggest this first hand account of a former Waffen SS officer. All too often peoples bias will interfere with them providing an objective view, especially dealing with Nazi Germany. It may shock some when they realize this man, and his comrades, were simply fighting for their country and people, much like our own soldiers during the war!
