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.

Image taken around Lake Kapanez in Karelia in the spring of 1944. The battle of Kaprolat and Hasselmann heights are the fiercest and most violent battle any Norwegian military unit has experienced in modern warfare. The losses experienced accounted for a significant portion of the Norwegian Waffen-SS volunteer losses during World War II. Image: Fair use.
