For whatever reason, I've gotten a huge interest in the fight between Russia and Germany in the second world war -- that fight alone, on that front, those two powers alone, would make it the largest war in history, without even counting France, Britain, Japan, China, the US. The cost of lives, the unbelievable destruction wrought by the Germans in Poland and the Ukraine and in Russia, and then the destruction wrought by the Russians as they marched the Germans backwards to their graves, it's just one hell of a story, one hell of a history.
The unique 5th SS Panzer Division was made up largely of volunteers from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia, the Netherlands, and Belgium The above information, that not only were the men in the Viking Division from northern European countries but that they were in the flippin' SS -- not too much talked about since then. No one is real proud of those men. Though of course the Finns and Estonians had plenty of reason to fight with Russia, and were natural allies with the Germans against the Russians, and I expect there is not near the burden of shame for those men as there was for men say from Denmark, or Belgium...
Thanks for posting, OP, I'm definitely in on this one.

It's an annual event in Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) and Western Ukraine these days to celebrate veterans of SS volunteer divisions. Always provokes strong reaction from official Moscow and ethnic Russians in these countries. You can argue until blue in the face who were the heroes and who were the cowards. The truth is war forces people to make choices that they should not have to make. I hate wars.

Dang sorry I missed this one...thanks for posting OP. Like AusTex I'm fascinating by German/Russian war which was titanic. I've watched every documentary I could find on the subject...the foreign German divisions are an interesting subject.
