Hello Nino

Thanks for the reply. Did you have this book?

So far, I had only seen few pictures of the SS Skanderberg division. What did you mean by the pics are terrible? Is it bad quality reproduction?

Hi Panzermahn,

Yes, I have the book.
Bad quality reproduction and all seem come from internet. Only one Skanderbeg soldiers pic.
You could find more pics about this division in Rolf Michaelis "Die Gebirgs Divisionen der Waffen-SS", Antonio Munoz' "Forgotten Legions" and Otto Kumm's pictorial "Prinz Eugen" book. But, majority of them already exist in internet, mainly in Carl K. Savic column.

Yes bad pics, but in any case the book include many info about the Division and is the only book actually dedicated to Skanderberg.

Thanks gentleman

I have been looking for any photos of the soldiers of this division wearing the goat's head kragenspiegln ever since my interest in foreign volunteers of the Waffen SS begun in 1999 but I never found any :(

I had only seen a couple of photos of soldiers of this division and none show then goat's head collar patch.

If someone has a soldbuch of this division...
