    Cool

    Hallo,
    the past year in Italy, has been made a show to live again of historical facts.
    In the 1944 near city of Asti, many partisans operated. German Command decided to send an units for destroy partisans units.
    During this anti-partigian operation Waffen SS units, make a concrete result but destroy a little town and they carried out the population.
    I was, very good show!
    best regards
    flak

    A unit of the 15th Latvian SS Division marching in the city of Riga, summer 1943. Latvia contributed some 150,000 volunteers for the Waffen SS - the most of any other Germany ally.

    Wow, I didn't know there were that many volunteers from Latvia. 150,000 men ... that has got to be a significant portion of all men fit for military service from a country of that size.

    @Atlantic Friend:

    That was uncalled for. Waffen SS were soldiers not butchers per se. And while it is true that these units did commit warcrimes, even with higher likelihood than the "normal" military since they were polititcal soldiers, there were also quite a few civilians they passed by and quite a few PoWs they took captive without massacring them. As a French one may be angry about Oradour and such, but in the end where is the true moral difference between such deeds and firebombing cities? Both were meant to terrorize the enemy into submission.
    In the end it is not fair or just to condemn a soldier just because he was part of the Waffen SS organisation, without looking at the individual, as if the membership to that organisation alone would stamp him as a criminal or a soulless combat android.
