Maybe I joined the Army to late, but what you wrote about the Verpflegungssatz - Feldration was just written on paper. I remember that we didn't get enough food while in training in Leoben/Steiermark and later on the front we had mostly to care ourselves for food. We got it from the farmers or - if ...

Reunion

Pan Orzel, please tell us what the old members of the former Waffen-SS have to do with skinheads or neonazis? Bring me only one source that veterans showed Naziflags or anything else during their meetings. Why do you think veterans from the States still meet with veterans of the former Waffen-SS? Th...

Rommel and Dietrich

H Groscurth, I nearly have the same "history" like Gerhard, just joined one year later the Waffen-SS. I got my PC after I retired in 1992 and I think I can handle it well.

Gramzow RK

We have a book from E.G.Krätschmer, where all bearers of the RK of the Waffen-SS are named. His name is not in this book, so it is sure, that he hadn't the RK as a member of the Waffen-SS.
