In 2007, Siegrunen entered is 31st year of publication. This is Siegrunen's first book-length issue. A few “book” issues were published some years ago, but this format is much better. This new format for Siegrunen will provide more content, including some revised reprints from out-of-print back issues.
Siegrunen grew out of editor Richard Landwehr's inability to locate any adequate amount of published, accurate material on the Waffen-SS and in particular, the non-German volunteer units, so he took a chance that by publishing a journal he might attract more sources of “good” information, and it worked.
 
He also strongly felt that the volunteers were being given the shaft by the mainstream media, if they were ever mentioned at all. The establishment defamation was, and remains, staggering. It did not take him very long to discover that these were not criminals, but for the most part, were above-average individuals, highly motivated, skilled and courageous who happened to belong to an elite military organization (the Waffen-SS).
