Danish Volunteers of the Waffen-SS : Freikorps Danmark 1941-43, Hardback Book

Danish Volunteers of the Waffen-SS : Freikorps Danmark 1941-43 Hardback

Description

Danish Volunteers of the Waffen-SS tells the story of Freikorps Danmark in pictures from 1941-1943.

Freikorps Danmark was established as a Danish corps to fight communism and, from its beginning, was controlled from Denmark, being placed under the control of the SS-Division Totenkopf and 1.

SS-Brigade during its service on the Eastern Front. It was a relatively small formation, which almost entirely consisted of Danish volunteers; during their time on the Eastern Front, they suffered heavy casualties.

In 1943, the High Command of the Waffen-SS decided to disband Freikorps Danmark and the personnel had to transfer to a new German division, which was directly controlled by the Waffen-SS.

The source material for this book has been gathered from the photo collections of former members of the unit and includes a large number of previously unpublished images.
