New Book about Nord Division

Post by waffen211 » Wed Aug 02, 2017 7:43 am

The 6th Waffen-SS Gebirgs (Mountain) Division \”Nord\”: An Illustrated History
by Massimiliano Afiero from Schiffer Publishing

Available Now

This book is the complete history of the 6th SS Gebirgs (Mountain) Division “Nord” in WWII. Formed in 1941, “Nord” was employed along the Finnish–Lapland front against battle-tested Soviet forces from 1941–44. Following the signing of the armistice between Finland and the Soviet Union in the summer of 1944, the division was moved to the western front. “Nord” units took part in Operation “Nordwind,” the final German offensive on the western front in late December 1944, where they fought against American units for the first time. Tough defensive fighting along the Moselle and Rhine fronts followed up to the armistice in May 1945. The units of the division fought to the last, always with courage and valor, distinguishing itself as one of the best German units employed on the western front. Detailed operational history, rare combat images, maps, and personality profiles make this book the definitive history of “Nord.”

Hi Waffen,

Does this new book about the 6th SS Gebirgs Division Nord had any information on foreign volunteers in it?
