 Hitlerjugend
The Hitler Youth - the Hitlerjugend or HJ - was offically formed at the second Reichsparteitag (National Party Day) on July 4th, 1926.
Although the Hitlerjugend would become the only youth organization of Germany shortly after the NSDAP came to power in 1933, the HJ was certainly not the first attempt to formally organize German youth along political, social, or religious lines.
For example, the future Hitlerjugend would take on the notion of "youth led by youth" and incorporate it into its core of ideals, while the unique style of dress pioneered in the Wandervogel would continue on in many forms among most all of the new organziations.

The outstanding fighting formation of the German forces during the battles in France was the 12th SS Panzer Division "Hitlerjugend" and General Reynolds devotes much of the book to this unit, which is justified since the 12th SS was involved in the fighting throughout the beginning.
The Hitlerjugend Divisuion proved itself throughout the fighting, due in no small part to Kurt "Panzer" Meyer, who was one of the regimental commanders and later the commanding officer of the Division after the death of Fritz Witt, the Hitlerjugend's first commander.
General Reynolds is also even-handed in his examination of the alleged atrocities commited by members of the Hitlerjugend and also shows examples of Allied execution of German prisoners, particularly by Canadian troops (most of the documented execution of German prisoners by the Western Allies were commited by Canadians).
