ϟϟ-Standarte „Germania“

SS-Standarte Germania
An unidentified SS-Grenadier
The German advance throug the Low Countries and France was so rapid that German units were often in danger of overstretching their supply lines. This Race-to-the-Channel took its toll on the troops. Left image: Armed with a 9mm MP38, often called Schmeisser, plus stick-grenadiers in his belt, this SS-Oberscharführer of the SS-Standarte Germania leads his men along a roadside in the Western Campaign. This photo appears on the cover of the book Voices of the Waffen SS by Gerry Villani. Right image: An unidentified SS-Man of the SS-Verfügungs-Division. Both photos by SS-Kriegsberichter Friedrich Zschäckel 1940. Commons: Bundesarchiv.
