1944, the divisionwas moved to the western front. “Nord” units took part inOperation “Nordwind,” the final

Formed in 1942, the 8th SS Cavalry Division “Florian Geyer” was one of the most controversial units in the
Waffen-SS. Created with the intention of making it an elite unit within theWaffen-SS, it instead saw its main
employment from the beginning of the war in Russia as a rear area security force against partisans. The SS
cavalrymen carried out these duties with terrible effectiveness, demonstrating the full capabilities of horse-
mounted units in securing terrain that was militarily difficult. Late in the war, “FlorianGeyer” was employed
on the front lines against regular units of the RedArmy.The unit was wiped out during final battle of Budapest
in February 1945. Detailed operational history, rare combat images, maps, and personality profiles make this
book the definitive history of “Florian Geyer.”
