Description

This book is a detailed history of the 27th Waffen-SS Division "Langemarck", the Flemish volunteer SS combat formation. "Langemarck" was employed chiefly on the Eastern Front, first in the Ukraine in early 1944, then participating with a combat group in Estonia along the Tannenberg Line in the summer of 1944, alongside other European Waffen-SS volunteers subordinate to III.SS-Pz.Korps; covering themselves with glory and suffering heavy losses. After transformation into a division, "Langemarck" participated in the final fighting on the Pomeranian and Oder fronts, continuing to fight under extreme conditions, and always holding their assigned positions, counterattacking whenever possible. Most of the Flemish volunteers were able to surrender to the Anglo-American forces, thus escaping capture by the Russians. This complete treatment fills a large gap in Waffen-SS history. Informative appendices relate to the unit?s operational history and also provide details on some of its members, as well as uniforms and insignia.
