Overview

• The book narrates the experiences of a young German from Romania who enlisted in the Waffen-SS during the Second World War

In the Batailles & Témoignages collection, here's a new album dedicated to the story of a German Romanian born in Kronstadt in the Carpathians, who joined the Waffen-SS, and became an officer. He would go on to fight at Normandy. Finally a book about one of these Volksdeutsche (mainly German minorities in Central Europe) who enlisted in the Waffen-SS, proud of their origins and making great soldiers in the German Army led by Arthur Phleps. We follow this young German from Romania to his journey through the Verfügungstruppe and his transfer to the Hohenstaufen, as well as the training that took him there, which allows the reader to get a wider view on the formation of this division. The first battles were in Galicia and the Normandy coast where our officer was seriously injured and his military career came to an end. TEXT IN FRENCH
