SS-Heimwehr Danzig in Poland 1939 by Rolf Michaelis

SS-Heimwehr Danzig in Poland 1939


SS-Heimwehr Danzig in Poland 1939 by Rolf Michaelis

This is the first book in English on this obscure early-World War II SS unit. In July 1939, SS-Heimwehr Danzig was formed from members of the III./4. SS-Totenkopf-Standarte Ostmark, as well as from Danzig citizen volunteers. As a unit of the Reichsfuhrer-SS they reinforced other existing Danzig units for the impending invasion of Poland. This book not only describes the political background that led to their deployment in September 1939, but also contains the combat recollections of former members, as well as over 100 photographs, and documents.
