    Bored Bored Bored

    This has got to be the most boring book every written on the SS or the Third Reich for that matter. Names are just thrown into the plot assuming you know the full background. If by chance you knew the full background then there is no point to the book. It is just a continuous description of the structure, roles and administration of the SS. Every page reads just like the last. I reluctantly plodded on with this book until the bitter end, hoping that things would improve...but they got worse. I can't think of one interesting fact which sticks in my mind. Don't buy it, you won't be disappointed.
