Up to now, I found this level of detailed, referenced and well documented book in german only. This book is more than a biographical book because he provides a number of datas which give a good view of the actions of a number of them without compromission (i.e. Karl Hermann Frank and his responsability in the killing of unhabitants and destruction of the village of Lidice in Tchecoslovakia). The author give german and english translation of a number of terms and that's very usefull. I appreciate that a number of biographies give a light on events, organisations and give a good comprehension of the situation. Another interest of this book is the general cadre of the book : he review as well SS leaders than political leaders of the nazi germany who held honorary SS ranks.
I wait now the second volume.

I'm desperate for the other books that complement this valuable collection, essential to know and study seriously the SS and police forces of the Third Reich, really worth the investment, I recommend it, Mr. Miller is one of the most brilliant and prolific authors of the XXI century in this area.

This is an excellent book. Especially for researchers wanting more background on specific men involved with the events of the period. Yes, you can use Wiki an other such Internet resources for a basic bio. Unfortunately it is not always accurate. With this book you get far more details. What I found interesting was how many of these men held a common history. They were constantly bumping into each other through out the growth of the Nazi party an afterwards.

If you are a collector of period photographs then this book is a must. Identifying who is who can be very difficult, at least for me, yet it is important for any number of reasons. This book would make a very nice present for someone interested in this time period.

A very interesting history book. This is a detailed collation of senior members of the German SS. Produced in alphabetical order, it describes in detail the postings, promotions, awards and war crimes of notorious SS officers.

I've got this book a couple of month ago. And I was really impressed by volume of interesting details dug out by author. Of course it's not a "true scientific piece" (lack of references etc) but it's very usefull for any person who's interested in this historical period. At least it did help me with my work on last novel. :-)
Photos are great too.
And I'm waiting for Volume 2!

Wow! If you believe Michael D Miller's "sockpuppets" who left glowing reviews for this book you'd honestly think that all these SS Police Leaders actually "hobnobbed", "bumped into each other" and "knew each other" during the ascension of the unit. Kind of makes them all sound like "Forrest Gumps" who just happened to be in the right places at the right times and were rewarded for diligence. But we know that never could have happened because Miller and his cronies such as Antonio J Munoz and Stephen Campbell have attested on other currently published reviews that this is "impossible" and outright fraud. This casts this book into deep dubious review. Buyer Beware. The author himself, and his associates, claim the material in this very book
was "unlikely to happen". They have openly defamed other authors who have made similar claims. Why should we believe Miller's text when he himself has advocated for the unlikely events that he is peddling in this text? Sounds fishy to me and that's exactly what this book is. It stinks of suspicion.
