Hitler\'s Boy Soldiers

Founded in 1922, the Hitler Youth movement, or Hitlerjugend, was comprised of male youths aged 14 – 18 and, by December 1936, membership stood at over 5,000,000. During the Second World War its role evolved from assisting with the postal, train and fire services into full war fighting. Recruits went into units such as the elite 12th SS Panzer-Division ‘Hitlerjugend’ and, in this brilliantly illustrated book, we see graphic images of this Waffen-SS force in action both on the Eastern and Western fronts. Even as the Nazi cause faced inevitable defeat these units fought with disturbing bravery and, after surrender in May 1945, fanatical elements carried out guerrilla actions in the Bavarian and Austrian mountains.

Using rare and often unseen contemporary images, this latest work in the increasingly popular Images of War series traces the development of the Hitlerjugend into a formidable fighting formation and gives the reader a better understanding of this legendary but distasteful Nazi organisation.
