This book is packed with information and first-hand accounts. The full details of Peiper’s outstanding military career and controversial death. 

This will be the definitive work on Peiper, covering his early life through actions in France as a company commander and then, in succession, command of III./SS-Panzer-Grenadier-Regiment 2 and SS-Panzer-Regiment 1. Follow Peiper through some of the toughest fighting of the war.
