Summary
"A rare look inside the Sonderkommando, "Dirlewanger, " the SS anti-partisan unit notorious for atrocities in Poland and Russia during World War II. These memoirs were written by a former member of the unit from its formation in 1940 to the end of the war and took part in nearly all its operations. A first hand account of the brutal and barbaric methods used by Dirlewanger against partisans -- methods that appalled even some SS commanders -- are revealed here in this memoir. SS-Sonderkommando, Dirlewanger, was originally manned by convicted poachers, however as the war progressed replacements were found by emptying prisons and filling the ranks with more hardened criminals. Here are the chilling recollections of a soldier in the SS-Sonderkommando, Dirlewanger, during the Polish and Russian campaigns, the 1944 Warsaw uprising, and the final battles near Berlin."--Back cover
