|Der gute Kamerad (The good Comrade)|
Brothers in Arms
On several occasions, captured Volunteers were found castrated by the Soviets and dead from loss of blood. Such brutality reinforced their determination to avoid being taken prisoner by the Red Army at all costs. The Waffen-SS-units spared almost no effort in liberating their comrades, dead or alive.
