Assault guns were the first armored vehicles in Waffen SS divisions to be used at the beginning of their military history. This first volume presents Abteilung “Schönberger” from the Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler, in the frontlines in 1941 which became SS StuG-Abteilungen“LSSAH”, and in which a young tank commander– Michael Wittmann – began to distinguish himself. We follow the unit during all its engagements. Still in 1941, SS-StuG-Batterie “Reich” engaged in Operation Barbarossa, was the embryo of2 SS-Panzer-Division assault gun group of the “Das Reich” which we also see in operations. We watch the evolution and the engagement of the first two Waffen-SS Divisions’ assault artillery groups with their histories, eye-witness accounts and numerous photographs, most of which areas yet unpublished, including some superb photos of vehicles, as is usual in the books by PierreTiquet. Other volumes will follow presenting the assault gun units from the other Waffen-SS divisions.
