SS-Panzerdivision "Wiking": Germanische Freiwillige im Kampf für Europa Gebundenes Buch
The volunteers who gathered in this Waffen-SS Division came from almost all over Europe. Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, the Netherlands, Flanders, Wallonia, etc. The commanders of the 5th SS Panzerdivison Wiking include Otto Gille and Felix Steiner. With the SS division "Wiking" created by Steiner and world-famous for their exploits, there is for the first time proof that it was possible in Europe to transform soldierly people of most diverse nationality and mentality into an internally homogeneous, comradely affiliated and militarily integrated operative organization which was superior to the Soviet masses in every situation. Inner unity grew with the realization of a common European task. During Barbarossa 1941, the division "Wiking" came through the Ukraine to the Sea of ??Azov, during the fall of Blue 1942 their grenadiers fought the Caucasus, in 1943 they defended the Donets area, got into the boiler of Cherkassy in 1944, shocked Kovel by command Gille and stopped in late summer, the Soviet onslaught east of Warsaw, to try in 1945 in a last, futile effort to liberate the besieged Budapest.
