“When SS Ustuf. Kurt Kramm arrived to take over responsibilities as an adjutant of the 1st Battalion of the panzer regiment that autumn near Rhaden, he came under the spell of its commander. Kramm found Joachim Peiper a charismatic panzer leader with “very blue eyes,” starkly contrasting with his black panzer uniform. “He is just like Hitler,” Kramm remembered, “for when he stands in front of you, he has so much fire and pep he gets you.”

“Jochen Peiper has an assured place in the long row of the greatest German soldiers of all time.
