Description - Hitler's Flemish Lions by Jonathan Trigg
Motivated by anti-communist zeal and a burning desire for Flemish self-rule, the men of the SS Langemarck answered Himmler's call to arms and earned a reputation for steadfastness in battle from friend and foe alike, right through to their eventual destruction by the Soviets in 1945. the exploits of key figures such as the famous Flemish Knight's Cross winner Remy Schrijnen are covered in detail. Written by a former captain in the British Army, this is the second in Spellmount's new series on Hitler's foreign Legions, following the best-selling Hitler's Gauls.

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.
