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.
First image: An unidentified Waffen-SS photographer belonging to a Propagandakompanie poses for the camera. This photograph was taken near Belgrade on April 10 1940 and suggests this SS-Rottenführer may have been one of the official Kriegsberichters assigned to SS-Infanterie-Division Reich during its advance from the Romanian border into Yugoslavia and then on to Belgrade. On April 11 1940 the first Grenadiers belonging to SS-Division Reich had forced their way across the Danube. Second mage: SS-Unterscharführer and SS-Kriegsberichter Ferdinand ''Ferry'' Fendt of Das Reich Division (1942). Commons: Bundesarchiv.
