Hi Panzermahn, By my calculation, the combined death toll of adult Waffen-SS men in the nine incidents you mentioned comes to about the same as the number of civilians of all ages and gender killed in just the one Waffen-SS atrocity of Oradour. While all massacres of prisoners are reprehensible, an...

e) 12 French Waffen SS troops were massacred by the Free French forces of General Leclerc at Karlstein, Bad Reichenhall in 1945 for "insulting" General Leclerc :shock: :? Not "massacred" but executed for treason. http://www.feldgrau.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=99650&highlight=#99650 What treason? Wh...

Hi Panzermahn, As there seems to be no specific evidence that any of the victims at Oradour were involved in the kidnapping of the Waffen-SS man and his subsequent murder, the responsibility for what happened at Oradour rests 100% with the Waffen-SS concerned. If you want to make the case that the ...

Hello Panzermahn! On the Oder front in 1945 you have the Kampfschwimmergruppe Ost under the command of Leutnant Fred Keller. The unit consisted of 16 volunteer frogmen and were to operate with the aim of destruction of the russian-made bridges over the Oder. Their first attack was against the russi...

@ panzermahn Knud Borge-Martinsen, the last commander of Freikorps Danmark was executed by the Danish Government which later found that it was unjustified during the 60s and 70s Hi panzermahn. You may think what you want about the Danish Government after WW2 and the backdated laws, that made servin...

Permit me to state my opinion, I believed that the massacre at Oradour and Tulle are war crimes, committed by the Waffen SS, no doubt about it. A war crime can never be justified no matter what are the reasons and physically the Germans are responsible for this horrible atrocity just like how the An...

Hi Kocjo, You put "battle" in inverted commas with justification. Like ALL of Skorzeny's personal actions, Panzerfaust took place far behind AXIS lines. Skorzeny was essentially an internal security enforcer. Skorzeny has been called "The most dangerous man in Europe". That should read "Possibly th...
