Rubbish

Nothing to do with the Waffen SS, just total drivel, same old myths and fables.

Oh dear a really disappointing book in all aspects. will not recommend to anyone. extremely brief in content and details and a poor narration makes it not worth bothering with.

Not worth your time.

I chose this book based on the title about "Waffen SS Soldiers" but what I got was a book about concentration camp guards and malingerers. If you are looking for stories of Waffen SS fighting men then DO NOT CHOOSE THIS BOOK. I am somewhat suspect about the accounts and the "translations" of the individual's accounts because, among other things, they use the terms Waffen SS and Army soldier interchangeably. As a former US Marine I know I would never use the terms Marine and soldier interchangeably and I find it hard to believe that other actual elite troops like the Waffen SS would allow themselves to be confused with regular German Army troops. Overall a very poor experience from an Audible book. Buyer beware.

False Advertising

This book is about SS concentration camp guards not Waffen SS soldiers. The book is not about combat at all but concentration camp goings on.

Not exactly uplifting

It is history, so I respect that aspect, but I prefer to listening to something that is a description of history or stories of hardship and heroism. These are the personal accounts of concentration camp guards. Not pleasant to listen to.

White wash

A complete waste of time. Of the 7-10 ex SS soldiers not one was genuinely contrite ...their days in the SS were the best days of their lives and they cannot hide that fact...
