Introduction. "Even today, more than six decades after the outbreak of World War II, it still seems incredible that thousands of men whose countries had been conquered by the Nazis should have volunteered for service with the SS. Hundreds of thousands more volunteered or were conscripted into the Wehrmacht, the Kriegsmarine and the Luffwaffe. Many had no choice in the matter, but a significan number were willing members of the German armed forces, and those who served with the SS were mostly volunteers. But why did the SS recruit them and , having done so, trust them in battle?" (p. 7).
