Summary The SS represented more than any other Nazi organisation the wild and deadly delusions of those who believed themselves part of the master race. Tonight's episode looks at The Waffen SS who were the elite military wing of the organisation. They were fanatical fighters who spread fear and terror in the early days of the war as the Blitzkrieg was launched against Poland and the West. This episode also looks at the major role The Waffen SS played in the attack on the Soviet Union in 1941. (From Germany, in German, French and Russian, English subtitles) (Part 5)
