Review: The Order of the Death's Head: The Story of Hitler's SS

User Review  - Daniel Mcclain - Goodreads

Heinz Hohne's "The Order of the Death's Head" is a pretty dense read. That being said, it is impeccably researched, and offers what I consider the definitive look at one of the most macabre and fascinating groups ever created. Read full review

Review: The Order of the Death's Head: The Story of Hitler's SS

User Review  - Christopher Saunders - Goodreads

Fascinatingly detailed account of Nazi Germany, focusing (as the title suggestions) on Heinrich Himmler and the SS. In many ways the anti-William Shirer: Hohne shows the Third Reich as not a ... Read full review

Review: The Order of the Death's Head: The Story of Hitler's SS

User Review  - Ray Schneider - Goodreads

A very long book with some boring chapters about the inner rivalries within the SS and with the Nazi party and the Wehrmacht. The last two chapters were the most interesting - the SS and the Resistance and the End days of the SS and the Reich. Read full review

Review: The Order of the Death's Head: The Story of Hitler's SS

User Review  - Randolph Carter - Goodreads

Riveting subject matter (5-star) but the book is either very poorly written (2-star) in a disjointed journalistic style or poorly translated or both. See what happens when an entire civilized country ... Read full review

User Review  - Nick Wallace - Goodreads

After all the movies over all the years, you would think that the SS and it's various arms were a monolith. This book sets about displaying the inner workings of this organization, showing the various divisions to be private fiefdoms of their respective heads, all vying for ultimate control.

Review: The Order of the Death's Head: The Story of Hitler's SS

User Review  - Seth - Goodreads

Holy shit, this is a ridiculously interesting and excruciatingly detailed history of the SS. Seriously, absorbing, but on a meticulously completist level I've rarely seen before or since. Excellent, but very serious reading at 600 pages, not for the faint of heart or easily distracted. Read full review
