A charismatic yet notorious character, Sepp Dietrich the man is impossible to separate from Sepp Dietrich the General, who was awarded twentyfour different honors during his service to the Nazi party and was known for his devotion to his men as he led them through some of the fiercest fighting in the war. In this extensively researched book, historian Charles Messenger attempts to discover the truth about this sparsely documented man, painting a vivid picture of the aggressive war and politics under the Third Reich. From Dietrichs humble upbringing and his eventual rise to General, to his dissatisfaction with Hitlers leadership and the trials he faced after the war, Dietrich remains a mysterious figure in history.

Good reading
March 2nd, 2013
Well written and an easy read of the story of a very brave well respected officer of the SS. The revelations of how the Nuremberg trials were conducted were eye openers. We are not as pure as we are led to believe. To the victor goes the writing of the history books.
