Of all Nazi Germany’s awards, the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross must be the most iconic for outstanding bravery and leadership in the field. This wonderful book charts those awarded to the Waffen SS and it is a very enjoyable book to read. It is sad to think about what the awardees experienced but their personal bravery has been acknowledged. The author has done a splendid job in helping to preserve their memory and he has done them a great service. Sadly, all these brave men have now died so all we have left for their gallantry are these photos, memories, and their Knight’s Crosses.

Dr Stuart C Blank

This was a fascinating read and something different to usual in the Images of War series, I really enjoyed this book as it was good to see from the opposite viewpoint of the German soldiers being congratulated. I’m sure there is probably an allied version of this book which would make a splendid read indeed. Despite the notorious reputation of the Waffen SS, it was nice to see at heart some could perform acts of heroism. This book is excellent with fantastic photos and information, a well done to the author for this book and his research. I would highly recommend this book.
