7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Troy Tempest on May 22, 2006
Format: Paperback
Even though this book is, by necessity, small, it does provide the reader with a great overview of this little known subject. For the layman and dedicated reader alike, it will provide a good working knowledge of the subject of the Wehrmacht's foreign volunteers, and open the way to a more detailed investigation of the subject, should the reader desire. With the usual good colour plates and informative accompanying text, Carlos Caballero Jurado and Kevin Lyles have produced a book that concentrates mainly on the Heer (army), but also covers the Luftwaffe (air force) and Kriegsmarine (navy) use of these foreign volunteers. The photos are often seen for the first time, and the illustrations and colour plates are first class.

A top read!

This book has information and pictures of volunters of the German Army in World War II. Members of the 3,000,000 man Russian volunters, the Indian volunters, the Arab volunters, etc... This book can open up new areas of research for you that are not commenly known with WWII buffs..

A superbly written guide for students and historians on a little covered subject. Highly reccomended for anyone that has an interest in the more obscure Wehrmacht subjects. RFM

THIS LITTLE JEWEL HAS BEEN AROUND FOR A WHILE, BUT IS STILL WORTH A READ FOR THE BEGINNERS WHO WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE FOREIGN UNITS, EAST AND WEST, THAT SERVED WITH THE NAZIS IN WORLD WAR 2. MOTIVATED MAINLY BY NATIONAL AMBITIONS OR ANTI-COMMUNISM-STALINISM, THE AUTHOR GIVES YOU A SAMPLE OF MOST OF THE FOREIGN UNITS THAT SERVED IN THE GERMAN ARMED FORCES, EXCLUDING THE WAFFEN SS. DRAWINGS ARE EXCELLENT, ALTHOUGH AGAIN I PERSONALLY WISH MORE HAD BEEN DONE ON THE ARM-SHIELDS.
