Siegrunen's third 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.

It is so refreshing to read something else besides the canned victor's stories on the Waffen-SS. Having studied the organization for over 35 years, it is nice to see an objective view of the Waffen-SS and its personnel.
A must have if you want to know the true story! I recommend them all! Thank you, Mr. Landwehr!

This publication is a must-have read for scholars of the SS. I hadn't realised the huge scope of the complexity of the organised Waffen SS.
—George McCullough

It is nice to read about the Waffen-SS in an objective light. Plenty of rare information in these journals. You say romanticism, I say objectivity, for once. Landwehr has no desire to try to look PC in order to save his own skin from haters of anything SS.

Another one of these books just finished. This book had good pics and covered the bios on particular German soldiers. Good combat narrative on German formations in Normandy.
—Scott Bailey
