The first systematic pan-European study of the hundreds of thousands of non-Germans who fought — either voluntarily or under pressure — for the Waffen-SS. The transnational perspective allows readers to see what patterns emerged across different European regions.
Shows how representatives of other nations participated in the Holocaust and major war crimes which were initiated and conducted by the Germans. Emphasises that the deployment of non-Germans in the Waffen-SS and German police units has a pre- and post-history. Deals with current events and developments such as the increasing Waffen-SS memory cult in e.g. the Baltic States and Ukraine.
