Hallo, I'm new in militaryphotos.net. I like WW2 and expecially the history of Waffen SS. Off course, I want to give a little contribution to this topic with some photos of Herbert Otto Gille, one of the best generals of Waffen SS. He was the first Waffen SS holder of Knight's Cross with oakleaves, sword and diamond as well as the most highly decorated member of the Waffen SS.
Sorry for my bad english.
