6 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Kelly Schoof on Dec 6 2007
Format: DVD
This video makes many claims about the SS without substantiating anything really. No documentation, and no interviews of personnel who were actually there. They make claims about how hated the SS were everywhere they went, however fail to mention that the SS formed an entire DIVISION of troops from VOLUNTEERS in Estonia/Latvia. Furthermore, those troops stayed loyal to the Reich and actually fought a guerilla war against the brutally oppressive Soviet occupiers for some time after Germany was forced to retreat. You can sum this video's usefulness up to some interesting black and white footage - just turn the sound off.

hitler wanted too raise the old celtic and viking tribes of the middle ages back too life thus so he created the ss which its orgin comes from the gauls(the celts)and also the suicide knights of the crusades there were different groups of the SS your basic field soldier and your cops and also guards even tank divisons,paratroopers the most highest honored unit in the ss were the Deaths head -or suicide soldier aka death soldier.so i say before you go and say the ss were not human go read the book on the vikings or the celts they acted the very same way its called middle age warfare a person who begs for there life isnt worth living the russians also believed in no surrender fight too the last man which in most cases they did so i end this with saying im damn proud too be germanic celtic im also american but i caNT put down my ancestors like that i have huge respect for the SS and the old german military them and russians were real soldiers .too say something else most of the german units and ss were on the eastern front fighting the russians probably the most brutal fighting front of the whole war

Format: VHS Tape
My father fought from North Africa, Italy, Southern France, Austria and finally Germany. He was wounded 4 seperate times. Received Silver Star, Purple Heart and Bronze star. His 19 year old half brother was killed beside him. All that being said, he and his comrades that I interviwed almost never took these mindless Nazis prisoner. The stories that they personally experienced of their Nazi crimes were beyond human comphrension. I am disqusted that anyone would think of these creatures in any terms but the horrible instruments of a maligant society. I am upset when I read these glowing comments on this herrondeous organization. These same men in my fathers outfit had respect and soldier to soldier consideration for the regular German Verhmacht. This movie does little to show what they were really about, which is Death and destruction.

Be warned - IT IS NOT IN COLOR Jan. 24 2006

A standard review with nothing new. The description says it is a color DVD. This is not true: everything is black and white.

This looks like a winner ( sic ). Aug. 22 2006
By B. Grant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
All I had to do was take a look at the jacket to formulate an opinion.
Two of the photo's are from WWI ( both widely familiar ), left to right, an infantry advance in Flanders, circa 1917, and the remains of a German skeletal corpse in the aftermath of Verdun 1916. The third photo is of a torch-light victory extravaganza, that were commonly held throughout 1933.
This is how the producers of this junk present their " product."
But inside, in 60 minutes, they are going to broaden your horizon on the subject of the Waffen SS. Sure!
Avoid this kind of throw-away. If the conjurers' of this stuff can't even locate a real Waffen SS action photo for their cover ( which afterall is the beginning of attracting your money ),do you trust them to say something expanding inside?

Utter rubbish - do NOT waste your money! (013) March 5 2007
By Troy Tempest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
They should be sued for saying it is a colour production, it is not. The only colour is on the cover, along with the photos that have nothing to do with the Waffen-SS. I could go on and on about the errors but why waste my time and yours? Whatever you do, don't waste your hard or otherwise earned money on this rubbish. Honestly, after over 60 years since the end of the war, and we still get stuff like this. I couldn't even sell it after I'd watched it, I ended up giving it away.

A disgrace!

War on Land and Sea, The - V. 3 - Waffen-SS (1990) Feb. 15 2000
By Amazon Kunde - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
A very nice video indeed. Beside the fact that its as far as i know,the only exisiting sold video of this type(waffen ss on video)it features some nice footage. The video features the rise and the history of the waffen ss.And on which fronts they served. I wished there was a bit more combat scenes and more info on the waffen ss divisions itself but i regard it anyway as a "must-have" if you are interested in ww2/waffen ss.

A Huge Clash of Ideologies Feb. 28 2001
By uruz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
An excellent account of a fighting force "with a unique reputation for daring elan and unfailing professionalism in combat." The British-narrated documentary moves from the Waffen SS' inception to its final brave resistance of the bloodthirsty Red horde closing on Berlin in 1945. It covers the various divisions in Germany (Leibstandard, Das Reich, Totenkopf, and even Hitler Jugend) and in the Netherlands (Viking) and gives accounts of both their movements leading the attack against Russland (operation Barbarossa) and defending The Reich against the invading U.S. and British troops in June, 1944. The video was impressive in its depiction of the Waffen SS: not as the misguided politically correct U.S. media would have us believe, but as German soldiers whose skill, resolution, and courage made them excel in a war of "unexampled ferocity the world had not seen since the Middle Ages." Despite its final, unsubstantiated, denunciatory statements, the documentary ends beautifully with perfectly ordered Waffen SS divisions marching heroically down a broad German avenue. And we know why allied troops were terrified to learn they were going up against the Waffen SS...
