The 13th Waffen Mountain Division of the SS Handschar (1st Croatian) was one of the thirty-eight divisions fielded as part of the Waffen-SS during World War II. It was the largest of the SS divisions, with 21,065 men at its peak, composed almost entirely of non-German Muslim and Catholic recruits drawn from Bosnia. Handschar (Bosnian/Croatian: Handžar) was the local word for the Turkish scimitar (Arabic: Khanjar خنجر), a historical symbol of Bosnia and Islam. An image of the Handschar adorned the division's flag and coat of arms.
The 21st SS Division Skanderbeg was a Waffen SS Mountain division set up by Heinrich Himmler in March 1944, officially under the title of the 21st Waffen-Gebirgs Division der SS Skanderbeg (Albanische Nr. 1). It was named after George Kastrioti Skanderbeg, the national hero of Albanians who resisted Ottoman invasion for 25 years.
Serbian Volunteer Corps
also known as Ljotićevci after their ideological leader Dimitrije Ljotić was a collaborationist anti-Partisan military formation in Nedić's Serbia during World War II. In July 1941, a full scale rebellion by communist partisans and the royalist "Yugoslav Army in the Fatherland" (Jugoslovenska vojska u otadžbini, or JVUO, or Chetniks) erupted in Serbia. The Germans pressured Milan Nedić's collaborationist government to deal with the uprisings under the threat of letting the armed forces of Croatia, Hungary, and Bulgaria occupy the country and maintain peace and order in it.
