Bruce Quarrie has written a number of books about the military forces of the 3rd Reich, of which this is one of his best. "Hitler's Teutonic Knights: SS Panzers in Action" is a sequel to his previous book on the SS, "Hitler's Samurai". Quarrie followed this book up with "Weapons of the Waffen-SS", which focuses on the weapons and equipment used by the Waffen SS.

"Hitler's Teutonic Knights", as the subtitle suggests, is an account of the actions of the various Waffen-SS panzer divisions. Not all the divisions were created as panzer divisions; some like Totenkopf and the Liebstandarte were originally infantry divisions. However, due to their ferocious fighting reputation, earned in Poland, France and the Balkans, it was not long before before they were reorganized as panzer grenadier divisions before being designated panzer divisions proper by the mid war period. The coverage of the units which were in existence at the start of the war is much more extensive than the portions of the book devoted to the formations created later in the war, Frundsberg, Hohenstaufen and the Hitlerjugend.

The appendix will also be of interest to many readers; as well as providing a breakdown of the composition of a typical SS Panzer regiment of the later war period, a brief discussion on the SS Kriegsberichter, who were the main source of the photographers illustrating this book, is provided. There is also a discussion on the divisional markings for each of the divisions covered in this book - however, this is only a brief discussion on divisional markings, and a much superior book on this subject is Bruce Culver's "Panzer Colors III", which covers the various SS units that saw action in WWII.

As a previous reviewer has commented, this not an in-depth review of the various military campaigns of the SS Panzer Divisions, and a number of chapters reference each other. Nonetheless, the text is well written. The strength of this book is in its illustrations - there are over 200 superb photographs, illustrating the soldiers and their tanks, both behind the lines and in action. These provide excellent source and reference material for military modelers; which is probably the readership who will find this book of most interest. However, "Hitler's Teutonic Knights" also serves as an excellent introductory text to the SS panzer divisions, with the caveat that, as noted above, the topic is not covered in-depth. Readers wanting a decent account of the campaigns of the SS best look elsewhere.

In Hitler's Samurai: The Waffen-SS in action, Bruce Quarrie tried rather pathetically in a few paragraphs to compare the Waffen-SS to Samurai. Interestingly, a book later he avoids making any historical comparison between knights of the Teutonic Order and SS panzer divisions. The title is simply a marketing gimmick.

Like Hitler's Samurai, Quarrie's writing is at times schizophrenic and varies in style. He'll explain things as if he's writing to a WWII novice and then indulge in technical details of tanks and equipment that few casual readers would understand. Having said that, Quarrie's narrative is satisfactory and he provides a coherent synopsis of operations undertaken by the major Waffen-SS divisions. Each chapter covers a specific division, namely the Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler, Das Reich, Totenkopf, Wiking, Hohenstaufen, Frundsberg, and Hitlerjugend. Another chapter summarizes in snippet paragraphs the roles and actions of other peripheral SS divisions. Don't expect a thorough history or many first-person accounts. Even the chapters on the key Waffen-SS divisions are only around 20-30 pages long and over half of that is photo reproductions. Indeed, this is a picture book with minimal text that can be read in a few hours.

My biggest gripe is the lack of maps. Quarrie spends most of his time describing Waffen-SS positions and maneuvers, but these are hard to appreciate without maps. There's not a single one in this book.

Bottom line: It's not bad reading, but there's better material out there about the SS panzer divisions, such as these titles: Panzer Divisions of the Waffen-SS;Armor Battles of the Waffen SS, 1943-45 (Stackpole Military History Series);Panzergrenadier Divisions of the Waffen-SS

I thought this was well presented, easy to follow and easy to read. Great pictures , some that I hadn't seen before and I will use this as a reference book for quite some time.

legend lore and certainly worth one cent what I paid for it,

This appears to be a very well written history on the SS Divisions. I would suggest that it could also be of importance to models; especially for those who do dioramas, as it has some interesting pictures. For the price it is a steal!
Wrathshaper
Outdated, inaccurate and simplistic history of the Waffen-SS by one of the proponents of the SS "Blond men riding Panzers" myth. Quarrie is also the author of "Hitler's Samurai" (1983)- a work that presaged the 1990's publishing explosion of Third Reich-friendly titles. "Hitler's Teutonic Knights" was probably useful and interesting for its time, but has been superseded by much better and more historically factual titles.
