An amazing book which is very well and thoughtfully written.
Black Edelweiss is truly a superb book which details the fighting conditions in northern Finland that the 6th Waffen-SS Mountain Division Nord experienced.
Voss does a good job of documenting his perspective and gives a great account of the political mindset of the Germans before, during and after the war.
I can't remember a book so open to the facts except Sledge's 'With the Old Breed'.
Nothing but the telling without rancor or bravado. Well done and thanks!
