Drawing on a superb collection of rare and unpublished photographs the 6th SS Mountain Division Nord 1941 - 1945 is the 6th book in the Waffen-SS Images of War Series compiled by Ian Baxter. The book tells the story of the 6th SS Mountain Division Nord, which was formed in February 1941 as SS Kampfgruppe Nord (SS Battle Group North). The Division was the only Waffen-SS unit to fight in the Arctic Circle when it was stationed in Finland and northern Russia between June and November 1941. It fought in Karelia until the Moscow Armistice in September 1944, at which point it left Finland. It suffered heavy losses in the Operation Nordwind in January 1945 and in early April 1945, the division was destroyed by the US forces near Budingen, Germany.

Ian Baxter together with Pen and Sword have produced a very professional history as described above. If you are a collector of this sort of thing you will be very satisfied. The original photographs are stunning and the text is very enlightening.

Army Rumour Service (ARRSE)

The main value of this book to me however remains in the many photos providing ideas for dioramas to build in our 1;35 scale modeling hobby, with an emphasis on the before and after battle scenes. Bivouacs, ruined buildings, resupply activities, broken and bogged down vehicles, transport, river crossings, travel….. it is all there !

Flyin' and Ridin' Blog, Francois A. Dumas

In presenting this campaign the written text is brilliant, while the photos themselves are well chosen and have a great impact for the reader, gritty and hard hitting and the portrait or burial photos deliver the human aspect of the harsh environment which characterized the theatre. This material lends itself to further and deeper study of both individual battles as well as the larger campaign which again we see as a strong point of the larger series works by Pen and Sword Publishing.

I would highly recommend this volume of the Images of War series to those who have already become regulars and also to those who might be new to the series. It is a good combination of written material supported by brilliant period photographs in the harsh un-forgiving world of winter warfare. The coverage of the Nord Division would be a great addition to every Second World War library.

Richard Wade, Military Historian

For military historians this is an interesting one, and for modellers lots of uniform detail and diorama ideas.

Most of the images are interesting and probably new to the vast majority of readers.
