Siegrunen's second book-length issue.
 
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.

Reviews

This series brings out the truth on how the Soviets treated the Waffen SS and the population of the Baltic countries and Germany. The truth has been buried for decades on what really went on with a blind eye turned by the West. Interesting reading.

Unapologetic Waffen-SS veterans magazine. If you're into the that thing you'll dig it. If the idea makes you gasp in horror, you'll hate it. The material itself is great. Well written articles on a variety of subjects and pictures you're guaranteed not to have seen before.

I have read several of these books already and I have not been dissopointed in each of its contents. The formation and bio of specfic German formations is covered. The books are easy to read and follow.
