PEIPER'S WAR

by Danny S. Parker  






The Wartime Years of SS Leader, Jochen Peiper, 1941−44. Peiper’s War is a new serious work of military history which presents a unique view off the Second World War as seen from a prominent participant on the dark side of history. Peiper was a handsome Aryan prodigy who was considered a hero in the Third Reich and had been Heinrich Himmler’s personal adjutant in the early years of the war. Having procured a field command in Hitler’s namesake fighting force, the Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler, he become famous for a flamboyant and brutal style of warfare on the Eastern Front. There few prisoners were taken, and motives of racial genocide were never far from unspoken orders. Transferred to the west, Peiper’s battlegroup incinerated a tiny town, Boves, in Northern Italy and killed the village mayor and priest. Peiper was convicted in the Malmedy massacre trial and sentenced to death. The sentence was commuted, with Peiper serving 12 years in prison. Being well-connected to Himmler and other generals of the period, Peiper finds a place in the narrative of the inner workings of the Nazi elite.
