The siege of Budapest came to be known in the history of World War II as one of the most slaughterous battles fought by Soviet troops for seizing a built-up area. That battle lasted 108 days and cost enormous losses for both the opposing forces. One of the reasons for the defence of the city being so long-lasting was the fact that the German-Hungarian garrison of Budapest had a high concentration of the best troops of The Third Reich - the elite SS-units. The present book, telling about the structure, as well as morale and psychology of the elite German military units, contains 18 drawn pictures of uniform and armament, clothing diagrams, a map of combat operations and 117 photographs.
