The SS grew out of Adolf Hitler's and Heinrich Himmler's
obsession to prevent the treachery they believed to have
caused the German defeat in the First World War. It was
to be an elite corps of politically aware soldiers whose
primary aim was to prevent the undermining of the Nazi
Party by rendering its potential enemies "harmless." This
disturbing story reveals not only the inner workings of
the SS, but also its paramount role in the mass murder of
Europe's Jews, homosexuals, and gypsies; its organization
of the death squads throughout occupied Europe; and the
military campaigns undertaken by the Waffen SS.
