The SS: A New History

I am currently reading, and thoroughly enjoying, the latest book by Adrian Weale. "The SS: A New History", published this year, makes use of material not previously available, including recently released intelligence files from Germany. It aims to look beyond the mythical image of the SS and reveal the true character of the organisation, and indeed some of the individual members of it. Whilst not inaccessibly academic, the book is well referenced and there is a fairly extensive notes section and bibliography. Described as a 'compelling' and an 'extremely important book' by Michael Burleigh it is certainly an entertaining and enjoyable read
