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. After the French campaign, SS-Standarte Germania was given the responsibility of acting as the core for an entirely new division, the SS-Division Wiking, comprising troops from Western Europe as well from Germany.
