This volume covers the period January to May 1944 and features 45 Knight's Cross, 7 Oakleaves, 3 Swords and the first Diamonds awardees. It was written with the help of surviving Knight's Cross holders and Waffen-SS soldiers that fought alongside them. Original maps will help the reader see the significance of each battle and the part played by the various Waffen-SS Knight's Cross awardees. This fourth volume contains a foreword by Karl-Heinz Euling (Awarded the Knights Cross while serving with the 10th SS-Panzer Division Frundsberg).
