Someone else recommended "An der Seite der Wehrmacht" to me a couple of years ago, and if I recall it was only available in German.

The best research today on the SS appears in German.

Thank you. This effort depends on the seriousness and engagement of those who make it.
For my part, I decided in 1969, when already a collector, to learn German.
Such a thing was, in a way, easier in 1969 than it is today, since there was more
of a German educational infrastructure close at hand and some merit
still adhered to foreign languages.
I attribute whatever merit I might offer to this decision to learn German and
to stick with it for the interval.
There exists an English language literature on the SS of very mixed
quality, and much of the good, new German work is not translated.
And, to be sure, there is a majority in the plenum here who becomes
sick to their stomach when any mention of a book or even reading eventuates.
