ϟϟ-Division „Wiking“ in the Caucasus September – December 1942

SS-Division Wiking's march route 
Teletype message to the SS-Division Wiking on September 28 1942: TO: Commander, SS-Division Wiking. The entire field army is looking to your division. You have the task of paving the way for the field army toward Grozny. /signed/ Generalfeldmarschall Ewald von Kleist. Many of the Wiking photos in this thread are photographed by SS-Kriegsberichter Willi Altstadt. He served with SS-Kampfgruppe Diekmann of the Germania Regiment from the days leading up to the attack on Rostov, through the fighting for the city, and then for the advance into the Caucasus. Willi Altstadt then started photographing the Finnisches Freiwilligen-Bataillon der Waffen-SS in the high country of the West Caucasus.
