Hitler's Flemish Lions by Jonathan Trigg
Book DescriptionBy the end of the Second World War there were soldiers of more than 30 nationalities fighting in the 38 combat division of the Waffen SS; Reich Germans were in the minority. How did a regime founded upon notions of its own racial superiority come to welcome hundreds of thousands of foreigners into its military elite - and what motivated these men?Following the sell-out success of his first volume in this series, "Hitler's Gauls", the author examines in depth the Langemarck division, composed entirely of fighters drawn from the Flemish lands of Northern Belgium. Motivated by a powerful anti-communist zeal and a desire to escape forever the interference of their traditional enemy, France, these men fought at Stalingrad and in the encircling battles of the Volkhov pocket. They fought the bitter campaign in the Ukraine in 1943-44, then in Estonia at the Narva. The Division was destroyed by the Russian juggernaut in 1945. Illustrated with rare photographs, many previously unpublished, and with close analysis of the key figures such as Flemish Knight's Cross winner Remy Schrijnen, this is a fascinating study of fanatical courage.

Author Biography - Jonathan Trigg
Jonathan Trigg served with the rank of Captain in the Royal Anglian Regiment in Northern Ireland, Bosnia and the Middle East. His first volume in this series, about the French Division Charlemagne, sold out very quickly. The third volume, due in summer 2008, is The History of the Muslim SS. This series is a must for all those interested in the greatest fighting force ever assembled and uniquely, its motivation.
