By the last years of the Second World War, the Waffen (Armed) SS had taken on a front-line combat role. Though not the elite units claimed by Nazi propagandists, these units had priority for new weapons and manpower, giving them considerable fighting power.
Black SS is a book supplement for the Panzer Grenadier series, with 30 new scenarios by Mike Perryman depicting the actions of Waffen SS divisions in the last years of the Second World War. There are also 165 new die-cut and mounted playing pieces depicting all of the SS playing pieces found in our Elsenborn Ridge, Road to Berlin and Beyond Normandy games with a black background requested by many fans, rather than the camouflage pattern used in those games.
Black SS is not a complete product: ownership of 1940: The Fall of France, Elsenborn Ridge, Road to Berlin and Beyond Normandy is required to enjoy all of the scenarios.
