ϟϟ-Division „Wiking“

SS-Scharfschütze
Heavy Soviet counterattacks during the winter meant that Heeresgruppe Süd had to fall back from Rostov-on-Don to defensive lines on the river Mius. The SS-Division Wiking fought a delaying action east of the River Mius from December 1941 to July 1942. During this time, several parts of the division were sent to defend critical points on the front of Heeresgruppe Süd especially to the west and north of Stalino. Image: Highly accurate professional Waffen-SS sniper units were very effective during World War II. Their deadly precision fire was legendary. Each sniper was paired with a marksman in a two-man team. Public domain.
