        They're decent, but don't have much that isn't already in the divisional histories. It makes sense that Reynolds had to thank Fedorowicz for allowing quoting from the unit histories they publish, since he took so much from them.

        You can find cheap copies of the Reynolds books out there, so try one as a teaser to see if you're interested in then ordering the more expensive unit histories.

          I got this book for Christmas and am only half way through it. IMO it's well written and very informative. I would recomend it.

                You need to have all of Mark Yerger's books on the SS, if you are a serious student of the SS. My personal favorites are the 2 volumes of WAFFEN SS COMANDERS.

                  Just been looking at his books.
                  Totenkopf. The Structure, Development and Personalities of the 3.SS-Panzer-Division
                  Looks quite good

                    In the Firestorm of the Last Year of the War is the veterans' history of the Hohenstaufen and Frundsberg Divisions. Sons of the Reich is largely taken from it.

                    In Good Faith is the 2-volume veterans' history of the 4. SS-Polizei-Panzergrenadier Division. It didn't have as glamorous a history as the SS-Panzer Divisionen, but these books will teach you a lot about battles that get very little coverage in English.

                    Books you can get more cheaply (mostly paperback) that are recommended include Viking Panzers (SS-Panzer Regiment 5), and two Heer (German Army) histories, The History of the 23rd Panzer Divison and The History of the 503rd Heavy Tank Battalion (both originally in more expensive hardcover editions that should still be available).
