Description Extended Information
 
Dragon DRF18002 SS-Obersturmbannfuhrer Joachim "Jochen" Peiper (1:18 Scale) "The German soldier is to be tough as leather, fleet as a greyhound, and hard as Krupp steel."
- Adolf Hitler discussing the creation of the new German soldat

As commander of 'Kampfgruppe Peiper' during the Battle of the Bulge, Joachim smashed across the Allied lines in December 1944 to lead Germany's final offensive of World War II. A wily and battle-hardened field commander, Joachim was awarded the coveted Knights Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords shortly before the end of the war.

Second in a limited-edition series of 1:18 scale mini-dioramas, Obersturmbannfuhrer Joachim Peiper is depicted as he appeared during the fateful 'Battle of the Bulge' -- the final German offensive of World War II. One can almost hear the rumbling approach of tank tracks in the distance, feel the bitter cold of the European winter of 1944 ... Panzers ADVANCE! Sold Out!

Historical Account: "The Pied Peiper" Joachim Peiper (January 20th, 1915 - July 14th, 1976), more often known as Jochen Peiper, was a field officer in the Waffen-SS during World War II, convicted of war crimes in Belgium and accused of war crimes in Italy. He was Reichsfuhrer-SS Heinrich Himmler's personal adjutant (April 1938 - August 1941). In 1945, he was an SS-Standartenfuhrer, the Waffen-SS's youngest regimental colonel. He was murdered in France in July 1976, after his house was attacked with Molotov cocktails.

Satisfied October 9, 2011
Reviewer: Robert Scott from Pittsburgh, PA United States  
I bought this figure to use with my 1/16th RC tanks and 1/18th tanks and armor, not to display as intended my the manufacturer.  The figure is a bit smaller than my other 1/18 figures but still works as not all people are the same stature.
