The Waffen-SS (Episode 4)
The fourth episode focuses on the Waffen SS. Nazi propaganda painted them as a military elite, intended to attract the best German soldiers. The fact that foreigners were later allowed to join the SS, or even forced to do so, did nothing to undermine this image. An unbeatable generation? This reality was very different, and many of them were poorly trained. SS troops fought with contempt for death and slaughtered anything which got in their way.
