Siegrunen's first book-length issue. A few “book” issues were published some years ago, but this format is much improved, providing more content, including some revised reprints from long 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.
 
He also strongly felt that the volunteers were being treated poorly 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.

Book covers the Spanish units that fought for the Germans during WW2 and the outcome of each unit. Book goes into training and location of the Spanish force that fought for the Germans on the Eastern Front. Very brave soldiers that fought for the Germans.
