Toronto Amber Printers and Publishers 1999 Soft Cover Very Good + 
169pp. A very good, clean, bright, tight copy.

This involved consulting original documents, something that has been lacking in some analyses that have condemned all members of the Legion as war criminals by virtue of membership of the Legion alone. This book is well-organized and well written. It draws balanced conclusions and presents them in a highly readable form"(A.J. Cropley)
