SS Hunter Battalions by Perry Biddiscombe


SS Hunter Battalions by Perry Biddiscombe

Conventional wisdom suggests that the Allies and the Soviets were the only side in the Second World War to support resistance movements. This book shows that Hitler had his own version of the SOE and the OSS, and that the Nazis too encouraged underground resistance against their enemies, especially as Europe was liberated in 1944-5.
