Volume 2 in this new series continues the overview of each Waffen-SS unit that fought during World War II, where it was raised and where it fought. Within each of the various battles covered, the book focuses specifically on each Waffen-SS soldier that was awarded the various grades of the Knights Cross to the Iron Cross. This second volume covers the period from January to July 1943 and was written with the help of surviving Knights Cross holders or the Waffen-SS soldiers that fought alongside them. Unlike previous Knights Cross books that are reference based works, this book is aimed at providing a detailed account of the part played by each Waffen-SS Knights Cross holder in each battle. This project was started to answer the questions: How many Knights Cross holders received their award for the same battle or action? Where they one mile or a thousand miles apart? Did the actions take place on the same day? These books provide the answers.
