Is there any evidence there were black soldiers in the Wermacht? The Wermacht and even the SS did make use of "non-white" soldiers during the war (they had Osttruppen made up of volunteers from the east such as Turkmenstan and even Chinese) and the SS even raised an Indische Freiwilligen Legion (Indian Legion) but black soldiers? Doesn't seem very likely.
I wonder if France, Belgium, the Netherlands or Britian had black soldiers, seeing as they had colonies in Africa? Or would they simply have served in North Africa and not in Europe?
Yes the allies had black soldiers and yes they fought in Europe. As for the Germans it might have been possible for a German of mixed heritage to serve in the wermacht if he looked aryan enough. Just like some germans of Jewish dissent were able to serve.
@ lone predator ; belgium did not allow congolese soldiers to fight in europe, not in WWI nor in WWII. This because the colonial system was based on the congolese belief that the belgians were invincible. Congolese soldiers on european battlefields would certainly notice that europeans/belgians/whites are definitelly NOT invincible, and also they would get to kill white/german/italian soldiers, which could give them experience and ideas for when they got back home...
Belgium never had white colonial troops in the Congo untill 1956. The congolese army had belgian officers and senior NCO's, and only congolese junior NCO's and soldiers. So there were no troops to protect the belgians in case the congolese 'force publique' would start a mutiny.
Two belgian/congolese brigades did participate in the campaign in italian eastern africa (ethiopia/somalia), they did some fighting but were mainly used for garrison duties. One of these brigades was send to palestine to gaurd POW-camps for a while.
In WWI the belgian/congolese did much better, they participated in the conquest of german west africa (Cameroun) and later started an offensive in german east africa (tanzania) where they fought and won at Arusha.
I doubt the germans allowed any blacks in theri army. I read a book about a afro-german who grew up during WW II and who unsuccessfully tried to become a soldier in the wehrmacht since even he believed in the bull**** the nazis propagated!
Most afrcians during WW II were actually happy that Hitler started a war and beat the allied during the beginning of the war. For them the european colonial countries and not Hitler were the evil. Many hoped that their colonial rulers loose the war because than they might get rid of colonialism.
