The Wiking Division was the only SS armored division exclusively to fight on the Eastern Front. True, it was partly composed of volunteers Flemish, Dutch and Scandinavian whose primary motivation – most of them – was to fight against Bolshevism. It fought with an energy never wavered even if the victory was not always rewarded for their efforts and sacrifices, as in Tscherkassy or Hungary. It counted among its ranks officers of unusual caliber as Felix Steiner, Herbert-Otto Gille, August Dieckmann and Hans Dorr Walter Schmidt to name a few. Its history, very rich and illustrated by more than 2500 exceptional photos in large part from personal collections, is traced here through a series of three volumes.
