Re: The Waffen SS
Both - fanatically good soldiers, highly trained, ruthless and elite.
Also indoctrinated with the myth of themselves as ubermensch (including the overseas elements like the Norwegians, Danes etc) and therefore perpetrators of the most heinous crimes, including POW massacres and providing personnel for the Einsatzgruppen, ghetto clearance and the camps.
Lokk up Lidice or Oradour to see if the Waffen SS can be distinguished from the Einsatzgruppen...
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them.
