9789197589550: The SS-Panzer-Aufklarungs-Abeteilung 11- Nordland and the Swedish SS-Platoon in the Battles for the Baltic, Pomerania and Berlin, 1943-1945

The armor reconnaissance battalion in the SS division "Nordland" fought in varied battlefields; from Ingermanland's snow-clad hills, to the defense of the historic town of Narva. Then further over Latvia's billowing landscape against the Soviet armored thrusts that were threatening Riga. Later on, the battalion fought in the muddy trenches in Kurland and on the plains of Pomerania.

Finally, in 1945, it was to be pulled in and exterminated in the final battle of Brandenburg, in the last desperate defense of the Chancellor's office in Berlin. This unit was unique as it contained the largest concentration of Swedish volunteers in the German army during World War II.

This book is the first of its kind about the unit and it presents unique facts and photo material. The book is based on diary notes and on an original manuscript written by men who participated.

The original material has been enhanced with additional pictures, more maps, more eyewitness stories told by Swedes and more facts than the original manuscript contained. This is the first time that the world gets access to such rich material with such an explosive description of the brutal reality on the Eastern Front 1943- 1945, described by members in one of the most experienced front units in the German army's most dreaded elite force; the Waffen-SS.
