Welcome! This is a Non-Political and a Non-Profit site (to include its authors and contributors) and does not subscribe to any revisionist organizations. This site is only to explore the combat role and history of the European Waffen-SS in World War II. Enlistment rolls show that a total of 950,000 men (German and foreigners) served in its ranks between 1940 and 1945. This blog contains a collection of real events and information on these volunteers for historical research and documentation.

In 1943 15,000 Italian volunteers started training at Truppenübungsplatz Münsingen, but 6,000 of them were unsuitable and released for training in other units. After World War II, as with other former members of Waffen-SS formations, veterans of the Legione SS Italiana (29.Waffen-Grenadier Division der SS) found employ in the CIA-orchestrated organizations of political warfare in an “anti-communist” role.
