The SS: Hitler’s Instrument of Terroris an authoritative account of Hitler’s private army. Every aspect of the SS is examined in full: its units and their battles, the foreign legions, the various non-military departments, and the key figures who led formations in the field and oversaw internal affairs within Nazi Germany, such as Heinrich Himmler, ‘Sepp’ Dietrich and Kurt Meyer. In addition, the questions of atrocities committed against prisoners and civilians, and the SS’s role in the concentration camp system, are addressed in full.The appendix includes biographies of some of the more notorious SS members, such as Adolf Eichmann, and Reinhard Heydrich. Ranging from its post-World War I origins to the fall of Berlin, the book will be of interest to both the student of military history and the general reader. Illustrated with 270 colorr and black and white photographs, many from private collections and seldom seen, as well as 25 color artworks, The SS: Hitler’s Instrument of Terroris the definitive account of Nazi Germany’s most notorious organization.

Gordon Willamson is the author of numerous books on the Iron Cross, including The Iron Cross: An illustrated history 1813–1945, Aces of the Reich and Infantry Aces of the Reich. He has also written for various magazines, including Antique Arms & Militaria, Military Modelling and Military Illustrated. He lives in Scotland.From Library Journal:
The constant flow of information on the SS has caused some authors to picture SS members as mindless killers, while others have labeled them "just soldiers." Further, there has been an effort to distance the Waffen SS from the SS who guarded the concentration camps. Williamson (Infantry Aces of the Reich, Sterling, 1991) has produced a lavishly illustrated book that purports to give a balanced view of the elite Nazi organization. While he does trace its history, he is too anxious to show that, perhaps, not all the SS was bad. As he states, when all the records of World War II are opened, "history may look upon some units of the Waffen-SS less harshly." This is an old argument to which Williamson adds nothing, though some of his illustrations are good. Readers who wish in-depth information should consult at least George Stein's The Waffen SS (1966). A marginal purchase for public libraries.
